‘The Morning After’: ODU Hosts Post-election Coffee Talk with Media and Political Scholars

Regardless of which candidates win and lose, the outcome of an election always provides great fodder for next-day water cooler discussions.

And with the attention the race for Virginia governor garnered, due to potential impacts to the broader political landscape, the Nov. 5 general election is sure to be a conversation starter.

To help put the results into context, Old Dominion University and the "HearSay with Cathy Lewis" radio program on WHRV-FM (89.5) co-sponsored "The Morning After: An Election Café." This panel discussion brought together media professionals and political scholars to recap the election and talk about implications for the commonwealth.

Panelists for the discussion included: Don Luzzatto, editorial page editor of The Virginian-Pilot; Dave Hendrickson, political editor at the Daily Press; Glen Sussman and Kimberly Karnes, faculty members with the Old Dominion University political science department; and Quentin Kidd, a political science professor at Christopher Newport University.

Following the morning event, segments of the panel discussion were featured on the "HearSay" program at noon on WHRV. During the show, Lewis took calls from listeners and was joined by Democratic blogger/Virginian Pilot guest columnist Vivian Paige and Republican radio host John Fredericks, of "The John Fredericks Show."
