Earlier this month crosscut.com brought together leaders and journalists from across the nation to the first ever Crosscut Festival. Executive Editor of Crosscut and KCTS 9 Greg Hanscom, hosted the keynote panel called “All the Presidents Men”. The panel featured former George W. Bush speechwriter David Frum, former Barrack Obama speechwriter David Litt and former George W. Bush Press Secretary Scott McClellan. This five-part series highlights segments from the panel.
If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, the Crosscut Festival is Friday and Saturday (February 2nd and 3rd, 2018). The event brings together speakers from all over the region and country. The purpose is to encourage people to talk about some of the major issues facing our communities today. KBCS’s Yuko Kodama spoke with Greg Hanscom, the Executive Editor of Crosscut and KCTS 9 Public Television. He shares his take on the shifting role of media in our communities, and gives us some highlights of the festival.
