Peter Maer - My Journey from Granite City to the White House

When: Thu., Nov. 12, 7:30-9 p.m. 2015

Veteran White House Correspondent Peter Maer will share memories of “My Journey from Granite City to the White House.” Maer retired from CBS News in January after nearly 40 years on the presidential beat. The SIUE graduate will describe how hometown roots guided his reporting. He will recall some of the personalities–known and unknown– who he encountered during a journalism career that took him from small town Illinois radio to the pinnacle of network coverage. Maer will also offer his own opinions on the media and information revolution that will have a profound impact on the 2016 presidential campaign.
