This event has already occurred. The information may no longer be valid.

Join Katy Tur, anchor of MSNBC’s “Katy Tur Reports,” for a look at the current landscape of partisan reporting and what it means for traditional journalism and its place as a cornerstone of democracy.

Beverly Kirk, the Newhouse School’s director of Washington programs and professor of practice in broadcast and digital journalism, will moderate the conversation.

Tur visits the Newhouse School as the inaugural guest of the Deanne Gebell Gitner Storytelling Symposium, established this year in honor of associate professor Seth Gitner’s late mother. The symposium supports student access to industry expertise and celebrates storytelling.

A dogged journalist, Tur emerged as a breakout broadcaster in 2016 while covering the Trump campaign across all platforms for NBC News and MSNBC. She is known for her resolute reporting style and for her determination to chase the facts. She has also earned a reputation for holding government officials accountable.

Tur was previously a foreign correspondent based in London for NBC News. She joined the network in 2012 and was initially based in New York. Before that Tur reported for WNBC, The Weather Channel, WPIX and News12 Brooklyn.

She is the New York Times bestselling author of “Rough Draft: A Memoir,” released June 2022, and “Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History,” released in September 2017.

“Katy Tur Reports” airs weekdays at 2 p.m. ET on MSNBC. Follow Tur on Twitter at @KatyTurNBC.
