Second Teacher Town Hall to be Broadcast on MSNBC

By Chris Ariens 

NBC News has announced plans for its second-annual national Teacher Town Hall live from Rockefeller Plaza. Brian Williams will moderate the discussion, with help from MSNBC anchor Tamron Hall and NBC News’ Chief Education Correspondent Rehema Ellis. The event will be held Sunday, September 25 and will be broadcast on MSNBC at NoonET.

“While I’m proud that last year’s town hall broadcast was nominated for an Emmy, I’m even prouder to say that I still hear from educators and parents about the quality of the conversation,” Williams tells TVNewser. “It is critical for us as a news organization to lend an ear to the issues facing teachers today and give them a voice in this important national discussion about education.”

The “Teacher Town Hall” is part of the 2011 “Education Nation” National Summit, which consists of live events and panel sessions on Rockefeller Plaza in New York City.
