It’s time once again for the Presidential Forums Watch Party. (Download a flier with details here)
This time it’s the Republican Candidates who will be taking questions from a panel of journalists moderated by Tavis Smiley and broadcast on PBS on September 27 from 8-9:30 p.m.
Here in Austin we will again meet in two different venues for a pre-forum discussion, then we’ll watch this televised Presidential Candidate forum as a group:
- At the LBJ Library our pre-forum discussion will be moderated by Alberta Brooks from the Austin-American Statesman,
- and at the Carver Library, John Hanson, host of the nationally syndicated radio program, In Black America KUT will moderate the discussion.
AND, once again we will be the citizen-bloggers participating in the PBS partnership with the Media Bloggers Association. Citizens at both sites will be guest bloggers here on the Texas Forums blog and their comments will be added to the MBA/PBS Web Site along with the certified bloggers at the actual event.
This is pretty exciting stuff, if I may say so!
