Sacramento Speakers Series: Lisa Ling


Journalist and Sacramento native Lisa Ling will return to her hometown of Sacramento this Tuesday. She has been invited as part of the Sacramento Speakers Series, which strives to provide an open forum for the exchange of ideas and perspectives with the hopes of enriching the Sacramento community.

The series’ speakers are chosen to represent a wide variety of subjects ranging from world affairs to arts and entertainment. Ling’s career covers these subjects. She got her start in journalism at the age of 21 when she covered the civil war in Afghanistan for Channel One News. Later, she went on to become co-host of the ABC Daytime’s Emmy-winning show “The View.” Most recently, she will have her own series on the Oprah Winfrey Network called “Our America with Lisa Ling.”

Ling is sure to have a delightful and enriching perspective to share with us all. For more information click here.
