WITH RENOWNED SCIENCE REPORTER
OSWEGO -- SUNY Oswego and the WRVO Stations will host National Public Radio Senior Science Correspondent Joe Palca for a fall Sheldon Roundtable Public Issues Forum on Oct. 30.
The program, titled "A World Without Walls: The Impact of Technology in Society," will feature a live on-air broadcast at 1 p.m. originating from the Hewitt Union ballroom on the Oswego campus. For the broadcast, carried live on WRVO, Palca will serve as moderator of an expert panel and share his observations.
There will also be a luncheon at 11:30 p.m. The cost of the luncheon is $12.50 per person, but there is no charge for individuals not attending the luncheon who wish to come to the roundtable program. Those not taking lunch will be admitted at 12:30 p.m.
"Palca has established a distinguished career in broadcast science reporting," WRVO News Director Chris Ulanowski said.
In addition to his science reporting, Palca has been host of NPR's "Talk of the Nation Science Friday," "Morning Edition" and "Weekend All Things Considered." The appearance also helps mark the 30th anniversary of "All Things Considered."
