NYT Political Correspondent Jonathan Martin to Lead Discussion on USU Campus

By Marcus Jensen |

Utah State University’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Institute for Government and Politics (IOGP) have collaborated to bring New York Times National Political Correspondent Jonathan Martin to campus for a discussion on Friday, Oct. 22.

Martin will lead a moderated discussion with Michael Kennedy, vice president for Global Government Relations and Public Policy at VMware. The discussion is part of the IOGP Informed Citizen Series and will take place at 1 p.m. at the David B. Haight Center on the Logan campus.

Martin has appeared frequently on television and radio as a political analyst and commentator on such networks as CNN, CBS, ABC, NCB, PBS, MSNBS and NPR. Before joining The Times, he had served as senior political writer for Politico since its inception in 2007. He began covering politics for National Journal’s political publication, The Hotline, and began reporting on party politics and the aftermath of the 2006 midterm elections for National Review magazine.

Martin is also a New York Times bestselling author, having co-authored the best seller “The End of the Line: Romney vs. Obama: The 34 Days That Decided the Election,” which was published in December 2012. His work has been published in several prominent publications, including The Washington Post, The New Republic, National Journal and The Wall Street Journal.

In addition to the moderated discussion, Martin will also speak with students about his career and experiences working for The New York Times, writing books and working on television and radio as a political correspondent. Free pizza will be served to students who attend the event.

The event is open to everyone, including community members. More information can be found at
