Panelists are:

Lori Matsukawa, anchor of KING-5 TV news

Knute Berger, columnist for Crosscut.com and former publisher of the Seattle Weekly

The panel will be moderated by Gil Klein, a veteran national correspondent, a past Club president and director of the Club’s Centennial Project.

The program begins at 5:30 p.m. in Room 226 of the university’s Communication’s Building. Admission is free, and the forum is open to the public.
