Blue Wave: Fact or Fiction, with Dick Polman

Sunday, September 16, 2018, 11:00 AM

Join DJOP as columnist Dick Polman discusses the topic of the November 2018 elections. So save the date for a not to be missed event!

As a kid, Dick Polman got hooked on journalism when a teacher defined it as “finding things out and telling people.” Plus, he made up his own newspaper and forced his younger brother to read it.

After that, it was steady sailing: college newspaper editor (George Washington University), general assignment/cop/politics reporter (the New London Day), alternative newspaper editor (the Hartford Advocate), metro columnist (the Hartford Courant), feature writer/ Sunday magazine writer/ political reporter/ political columnist (the Philadelphia Inquirer).

Dick has covered or chronicled every presidential campaign since 1988, and has blogged on politics five days a week since 2006. His Newsworks “National Interest” blog debuted in 2011. A Center City Philadelphia resident, he’s also on the full-time faculty at the University of Pennsylvania, as “writer in residence.” He has been a frequent guest on C-SPAN, CNN, MSNBC, the BBC and various NPR shows — most notably Philadelphia’s “Radio Times” on WHYY-FM.
