SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Veteran journalist Ted Koppel will speak at a public discussion of contemporary journalism, politics and world affairs at the University of Notre Dame.

The former longtime anchor of the ABC News show "Nightline" will take part in the discussion at 1 p.m. on Oct. 12 in the Hesburgh Library auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.
