In honor of former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates‘ induction as William and Mary’s 24th Chancellor, CNN’s John King will broadcast his program from the college this Thursday. King will interview Gates, who graduated from William and Mary in 1965.

“We are delighted that ‘John King, USA,’ is coming to campus to broadcast live on the eve of our 319th birthday celebration,” said Director of University Relations Brian Whitson. “This will be great exposure for the College.”

The event marks Gates’ first interview on a national news outlet since he retired in summer 2011.
