Jon Snow, presenter of Channel Four News, will give a public lecture at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on Tuesday 17 May.
Jon Snow is perhaps the most highly regarded newsman of our time. Since becoming a journalist in the early 1970s, he has reported widely on numerous conflicts and has met and interviewed most of the world's leaders. His vivid personal chronicle Shooting History is filled with anecdotes and pithy observations, and delightfully records his life and times.
Jon Snow has been the face of Channel 4 News since 1989 when he became the main presenter. He often does his own reporting on major stories of the day, drawing on his years of experience as ITN's diplomatic editor and Washington correspondent.
Dr Maggie Scammell, LSE, will chair this event.
Shooting History: a personal journey is on Tuesday 17 May at 1.05pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton Street, London WC2A.
The event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
To request a press ticket, please contact Jessica Winterstein, LSE Press Office, on 020 7955 7060 or email j.Winterstein@lse.ac.uk
Jon Snow will be signing copies of his book Shooting History in the Old Theatre after the lecture until 2.30pm.
