About MPR’s Broadcast Journalist Series

For over 20 years, Minnesota Public Radio's Broadcast Journalist Series commissions journalists and correspondents for a 24-hour residency four times a year, 2 in the fall and 2 in the spring each season. While here they share insights on their craft as well as on people and events. The Broadcast Journalist Series is an hour long live discussion with a visiting journalist and includes an audience Q&A. The interview is recorded for later broadcast on MPR News.

All events take place at the University of St. Thomas O'Shaughnessy Education Center and are free, but tickets must be reserved.
