NPR’s Domenico Montanaro to Discuss       Politics, View from Washington   

New Hampshire Public Radio and the Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership & Public Service at the University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law will host NPR’s Senior Political Editor/Correspondent Domenico Montanaro as the next speaker in the Justice & Journalism series. The event will take place on Tuesday, September 17, 2019, at 5:30 p.m. at UNH Law in Concord. The event is free, but registration is required.

The Justice & Journalism series brings nationally renowned journalists to the Rudman Center for engaging conversations on public affairs and the public servants who create, implement, and influence public policy. The series is a joint initiative of NHPR and the Rudman Center, made possible by the generous support of The Couch Family Foundation. This edition of the event coincides with Constitution Day, an observance that celebrates the founding and signing of the U.S. Constitution.

As NPR’s Senior Political Editor/Correspondent, Montanaro regularly appears on-air and online with analyses of the political climate in Washington and on key state and national campaigns. His work on NPR’s Washington Desk includes serving as the lead editor of NPR’s Supreme Court coverage, and helping to edit political coverage overall.

NHPR’s Laura Knoy, host of the live call-in news show The Exchange, will conduct a conversation with Montanaro to get his perspectives on politics in the nation’s capital and beyond. After the discussion, Montanaro will take questions from the audience.

Montanaro joined NPR in 2015, after gaining considerable experience reporting on politics for the PBS NewsHour – serving as political director and senior producer for politics and law. Also in television, Montanaro covered two presidential elections as a deputy political editor at NBC News, where he also reported and edited for the network’s political blog, “First Read.”

Montanaro got his initial start in journalism working at The Review, his college paper at the University of Delaware. He is a native of Queens, New York.

[LISTENING NOTE:  Domenico Montanaro will also appear on The Exchange with Laura Knoy, live on NHPR at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, September 18, with a replay that evening at 7 p.m.]

About the Rudman Center and UNH Law

New Hampshire Senator Warren B. Rudman was widely admired for his integrity and willingness to work with politicians across the aisle in order to advance the public interest. In lending his name to the Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership & Public Service at the UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law, Senator Rudman stated that he could “think of no greater mission than to train our next generation of leaders to seek justice, serve their country, and work together for the common good.” The Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership & Public Service operationalizes this charge by providing programmatic and financial support for students interested in exploring public service careers.
