ESPN Leader To Speak At K State

The president of ESPN will join three college athletics executives in delivering a Landon Lecture next month at Kansas State University.

ESPN’s John Skipper is also CEO of Disney Media Networks. He’ll be joined for the April 2 lecture by Big 12 Conference Commissioner Bob Bowlsby, retired University of Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds and Kansas State President Kirk Schulz.

Schulz is also a member of the NCAA executive committee and its board of directors. Kansas State athletics director John Currie will moderate the lecture.

The Landon Lecture is named for former Kansas Governor Alf Landon, who was the 1936 Republican nominee for president. The lecture series was established in 1966 to bring in speakers to discuss issues facing business, politics and international relations.
