WTCI To Broadcast "Senator Bob Corker In Conversation With Jon Meacham" On Dec. 13

Friday, December 7, 2018

WTCI announced a special broadcast event on Thursday, Dec. 13, featuring Senator Bob Corker in conversation with Jon Meacham. Sponsored by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, McCallie School, McCallie Summer Camps and the law firm of Summers, Rufolo and Rodgers, this special local production will be broadcast throughout Tennessee and will be available streaming online following the broadcast.

 

After 12 years in the United States Senate, Senator Corker is leaving the deliberative body.

Pulitzer Prize winning author Jon Meacham will sit down with Senator Corker for a wide ranging, hour-long conversation about how the nation has changed during his tenure and what lies ahead.

 

Paul Grove, president and CEO of WTCI, said, “Producing and distributing this special interview statewide is a service that provides a value to the citizens of the region and Tennessee. WTCI has proudly served for nearly fifty years and as our country continues to change, we are honored to share meaningful conversations.” Audiences from throughout the Tennessee Valley and beyond are invited to tune in to the broadcast debut on WTCI on Thursday, Dec. 13, at 8 p.m. Encore broadcasts of this special hour-long conversation will air on WTCI Sunday, Dec. 16, at 7 p.m. and Tuesday, Dec. 18, at 9 p.m.

 

Mr. Meacham, a McCallie graduate, former Chattanooga Times reporter and presidential historian, delivered a stirring eulogy at the funeral of President George H.W. Bush earlier this week. Meacham is the author of “Destiny and Power,” a biography of the 41st President of the United States. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for biography in 2009 for “American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House,” and has also written several other best-selling history books, including “Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power,” “Franklin and Winston: An Intimate Portrait of an Epic Friendship,” and, most recently, “Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels.”
