Steve Forbes, chairman and editor in chief of Forbes Media, will give the first Landon Lecture of the year at Kansas State.
Forbes, who is also an author, served as chairman of the Board of International Broadcasting under presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.
He also ran for president in 1996 and 2000 with a platform that included a flat tax, medical savings accounts, a new Social Security system, school choice, term limits and a strong national defense, an agenda he continues to promote.
The speech is scheduled for March 9 at 7 p.m. in McCain Auditorium.
