Liz Kineke to speak on the relationship between religion and journalism on March 2

Kineke, former executive producer for CBS Religion & Culture and an award-winning journalist, will discuss her insights from her career on the religion beat.

Elon will host journalist Liz Kineke on Monday, March 2, for a broadcaster’s perspective on the intersections of culture, religion, and public life in the U.S. Her talk is titled, “Religion is Always in the Room: Lessons from Reporting on the God Beat.”

Kineke, former executive producer and writer for CBS Religion & Culture, came to learn that every story has a religion angle. During her 14 years at CBS, she produced weekly, half-hour documentaries on religion, culture, and public life. She discovered that religion pervades the experience and commitments of Americans, impacting our politics and our cultural life, yet we think of faith largely in terms of private and personal concerns. As a reporter, she tried to change that.

Her lecture will be held in Numen Lumen Pavilion at 5:30 pm. The event is free and all are welcome.

Kineke’s visit is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Religion, Culture and Society.
