The CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley will broadcast live from TCU on April 9 just before the 10th annual Schieffer Symposium on the News.

Pelley will anchor the 5:30 p.m. broadcast from the Bob Schieffer College of Communication, TCU said Monday in a news release.

Panelists on the symposium will be investigative reporter Bob Woodward, columnist Peggy Noonan and Jane Pauley, a former Today show anchor.

The symposium will be “the best ever,” Schieffer said.

The college is named for Schieffer, a TCU alumnus and CBS News’ chief Washington correspondent. He is moderator of CBS’ Face the Nation.

“Scott and Executive Producer Pat Shevlin love to take the broadcast where news is happening,” Schieffer said. “And I’m clearly biased on this one, but I can’t think of a more exciting place to anchor the news than the TCU campus.

“We’ve also assembled an all-star cast of front-line journalists to talk about the news and the revolution in communications.”

Woodward, best-known for his Washington Post reporting in the Watergate scandal in 1972, was a panelist at the inaugural Schieffer Symposium, in 2005, according to the news release.

Pauley, who formerly co-anchored NBC’s Today show and Dateline, is the author of Your Life Calling: Reimagining the Rest of Your Life, a current New York Times bestseller.

Noonan, a columnist for The Wall Street Journal, was a speechwriter for President Ronald Reagan .

“We started these symposiums not only to give our students an opportunity to see and hear journalism’s top people, but also to give those leaders a chance to see TCU,” Schieffer said.

Tickets for the Schieffer Symposium will go on sale March 8 and will be available at www.schieffercollege.tcu.edu.
