Contact: Brittany Hargrove, Senior Media Arts & Communication Student

LA GRANDE, Ore. April 13, 2016 Eastern Oregon University students, faculty and community members are invited to a free presentation by talk radio show host Lars Larson Tuesday, May 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the Gilbert Center on campus.

The event is the capstone project of Brittany Hargrove, a senior media arts and communication student at EOU, and is sponsored by the Union County Republicans.

Larson is a nationally known radio host, award-winning news journalist, and regular guest on Fox News and other radio and television news outlets. Currently based in Portland, he started his media career at age 16 in Tillamook for The Mighty 1590 KTIL, and later worked for numerous radio and television stations such as KPTV and KOIN. His long-running radio program, “The Lars Larson Show,” airs in the morning in the Northwest and in the late afternoon across the country.

“I am so excited to bring a bold speaker like Lars to campus,” Hargrove said. “I have been listening to him with my dad since I was a tiny girl, so this is something that I have been aspiring to do for many years.”

“As a media arts and communication student and an avid political aficionado, I cannot wait to hear what he has to say,” Hargrove added. “Conservative, liberal, or independent, everyone in the audience will surely take something away from Lars’ speech.”

EOU students who attend can enter a raffle for a chance to win a $50 gift card from Amazon or Safeway donated by Lane Farms, or a gift certificate for lunch for two donated by Joe Beans.
