ABC News correspondent Jan Crawford Greenburg will visit Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications on Wednesday, Sept. 23, as a guest of the Carnegie Legal Reporting Program.

“From Newsprint to Network News: A Conversation with Jan Crawford Greenburg” will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium in Newhouse 3. The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available in SU pay lots.

Greenburg is based in Washington, D.C., where she covers the Supreme Court and provides legal analysis for all ABC News broadcasts. She is the author of “Supreme Conflict: The Inside Story of the Struggle for Control of the United States Supreme Court” (Penguin Press, 2007).

Prior to joining ABC, Greenburg was the national legal affairs reporter for the Chicago Tribune, where she covered the Supreme Court and national legal issues, including judicial appointments and confirmation battles. She won the Tribune’s top reporting award in 2001, as part of a team of reporters that covered the 2000 presidential election and the subsequent legal battles over the White House. She won the same award for a 13-part series on the South, a generation after the Civil Rights Movement, in 1996.

The Carnegie Legal Reporting Program is supported by the Carnegie Journalism Initiative.
