Change in speaker for VA Book Festival Business Breakfast: Roger Mudd

Posted by lbanner on March 17, 2008

Former newsman Roger Mudd has agreed to be the featured speaker at the Virginia Festival of the Book’s March 26 Business Breakfast, replacing Eric Abrahamson, who had to drop out due to a scheduling conflict.

Mudd was the documentary host and correspondent for The History Channel from 1995 until he retired in 2004. Between 1961 to 1992, he was a Washington correspondent for CBS News, NBC News and the MacNeil/Lehrer Newshour on PBS. He won the George Foster Peabody award for “The Selling of the Pentagon” in 1970 and for “Teddy” in 1979 and the Barone Award for Distinguished Washington Reporting in 1990. Business Breakfast attendees will be among the first to hear Mudd talk about his memoir, The Place to Be, due to be released the end of March.

Individual tickets for the event are still on sale.
