Special edition of "NewsNight Akron" to analyze Governor Strickland's Akron meeting

Governor Ted Strickland's "Conversation on Education" from Wednesday is a bit too much to digest in just a few minutes of tonight's regularly-scheduled edition of NewsNight Akron on PBS 45/49 at 9 p.m.

So we're adding a second round table discussion to air at 11 p.m. tonight

Jody Miller will host the special .. with ABJ education reporter Stephanie Warsmith, former Superintendent Joe Siegferth, and I offering analysis as panelists.

A condensed broadcast of the Governor's meeting will air at 10 p.m. and precede the special.

If you were like me and couldn't attend Wednesday, you can watch the entire discussion on-line by clicking here.

I watched the special edition of News Night Akron last evening was pleased to hear your comments. When speaking to a friend 2 weeks ago, she mentioned the Governor Strickland meeting. My husband and I had both been unaware of this special event - and we were told that attendance was by special invitation only. Therefore . . . I do believe that everyone was handpicked for the event - and that includes Marquise, the young man with the troubled past and much improved future due to the Governor of the State of Ohio. He was picked between Monday and Wednesday of this week. Hope you and Jodi Miller continue to cover this story.
