TPR, in partnership with the World Affairs Council of San Antonio, hosted “A Conversation with Corey Flintoff: The Resurgence of Russia” at 6:30 p.m., on Friday, June 23, 2017, at the McNay Art Museum.  

The veteran journalist shared his observations about Russian resurgence and the evolving relationship between Putin’s Russia and the US.  Flintoff was joined on stage by Trinity University’s Dr. Bruce T. Holl, associate professor of Modern Languages & Literatures, and the editor of Russian Notes, a compendium of news and commentary on Russia.

Texas Public Radio's Technology and Entrepreneurship Reporter Paul Flahive and The Source talk show Host David Martin Davies brought home three First Amendment Awards Friday  from the Fort Worth chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.

The winning entries are:
