Mara Liasson is a national political correspondent for NPR, and a contributor to FOX News. Regular NPR listeners will often hear her stories and reports on Morning Edition and All Things Considered. She covers politics and policy from Washington, DC — focusing on the White House and Congress — and also reports on national political trends. She’s in town for a few days because last year she was named a Florida Gulf Coast University Presidential Fellow. While she’s here, she’ll be meeting journalism students on campus to talk about First Amendment issues — plus she’ll meet with WGCU members tomorrow evening at the Hilton in Naples. So, we’ve brought her into our studio to get to know her, and explore how her job as a political journalist and correspondent has changed over her more than 30 year career.
