NPR's Juana Summers Speaks Wednesday At KU

There's going to be a panel discussion on journalism and politics at the University of Kansas.

NPR political correspondent Juana Summers is joining three other reporters to talk about the midterm elections, including some tight races here in Kansas.

"The Kansas Governors race is one that surprised a lot of people," she says. "A lot of people, as you know, were not expecting this race as to be as hot as it is, but it's getting the attention of national political reporters just based on how close it is and the fact that it was unexpected."

Summers and three other national reporters will present their views at 7:30 Wednesday night at the Dole Institute of Politics on the KU campus.

The event, called "The Media and the Midterms," is free and open to the public.
