Cokie Roberts, the great political reporter for NPR, has just been booked in to the Bing Crosby Theater, 901 W. Sprague, for a talk on Oct. 1, 8 p.m.
Spokane Public Radio is sponsoring her appearance. Roberts will talk about the issues roiling the other Washington, including healthcare, the debt, the economy and whatever new national crisis has reared its head by Oct. 1.
Roberts comes by her political acumen honestly. She's the daughter of two famous Congress members, her father Hale Boggs and her mother Lindy Boggs.
A lot of people, and I am one, rely on her for a level-headed view of what's happening in politics.
Tickets will be $40 (it's a Spokane Public Radio fundraiser), on sale Aug. 19 through Ticketswest.
Carl Kasell, the veteran NPR newscaster and “Wait Wait … Don't Tell Me” announcer and judge, is on the way to the Bing Crosby Theater in Spokane on May 9, 7:30 p.m.
Kasell will regale the audience with stories about broadcasting — and even perform a few magic tricks. Yeah, he's also an amateur magician.
“An Evening with Carl Kasell” is sponsored by Spokane Public Radio. Tickets will be $27, on sale Feb. 25 through all TicketsWest outlets or by calling (800) 325-SEAT.
