In honor of our Baseball exhibition, we hosted a Reagan Forum featuring Hall of Fame Broadcaster Vin Scully.
This year, Vin Scully is announcing an unprecedented 65th season for the Dodgers organization. Scully calls all Dodger home games and road games in California and Arizona.
When Scully first began broadcasting in 1950, the Dodgers had yet to win a single World Series and were known affectionately as "Dem Bums." Three years later, at the age of 25, he became the youngest person to ever broadcast a World Series game and in 1955, he had his most memorable moment behind the microphone, as he called the Dodgers' first and only championship in Brooklyn.
This year marks twenty five years since President
Reagan left the White House and ten years since
our nation mourned his death. On June 5, 2014,
the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation will
commemorate these anniversaries with a special
program at his Presidential Library that will focus
on his legacy and impact on the country after so
many years since leaving office.
The day-long event includes a morning reception and welcoming remarks, a panelist session, moderated by Peggy Noonan, to discuss his legacy and his impact in today’s politics, and a luncheon keynote address. Panelists include President Reagan biographers Dr. Steven Hayward, Mr. Lou Cannon, and Mr. Craig Shirley, as well as Time Magazine Executive Editor Mike Duffy.

Lecture and book signing with Lynne Cheney on her latest book, James Madison: A Life Reconsidered (Publish Date: May 6). Mrs. Cheney joined on stage by her husband, former Vice President Richard Cheney, who will shared in the discussion about the book.
No one was more crucial to the nation’s founding than James Madison. He was not only the father
of the Constitution and author of the Bill of Rights,
he was essential to setting the young Republic in
motion. In her new biography of Madison, Lynne
Cheney unearths the sources of his genius. She
explores his rivalry with Alexander Hamilton, whose
expansive vision of government Madison opposed.
She traces his friendship with Thomas Jefferson
and his relationship with his beloved wife Dolley
Payne Todd Madison, the most glamorous woman
of the day. In this compelling book, she makes
clear Madison’s central place among our nation’s
Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, is the author or coauthor
of twelve books, including six bestsellers, about American history
KRLA’s 870AM The Answer and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation featured a live radio broadcast with Hugh Hewitt, and a lecture and book signing with Rick Santorum on Friday, May 2, 2014.
Since launching his radio show, Hugh Hewitt reaches an audience of more than 2 million listeners each week. Hugh Hewitt is also a Professor, teaching Constitutional Law at Chapman University Law School.
2012 Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum took the stage to discuss his latest book, “Blue Collar Conservatives: Recommitting to an America that Works” (publish date: April 28, 2014). Rick Santorum, a native of Pennsylvania, was a candidate for the Republican nomination for president of the United States in 2012. In June 2012 he launched Patriot Voices, a grassroots and online community of Americans committed to promoting faith, family, freedom, and opportunity. Prior to running for president, Santorum served in the House of Representatives from 1991 to 1995, and in the Senate from 1995 to 2007.
In “Blue Collar Conservatives: Recommitting to an America that Works”, Rick Santorum provides a game plan for Republicans to bounce back, regain popularity, and return to the party’s original values: the solution rests on rediscovering blue collar conservatives.
In honor of our Baseball exhibition, the Reagan Forum featured Major League Baseball Hall of Fame inductee and former Los Angeles Dodgers
manager Tommy Lasorda.
After a brief career as a left-handed pitcher,
Tommy Lasorda became one of the most
enthusiastic and successful managers in
baseball history. Lasorda, who has been
with the Dodgers for 65 years, led the team
to two world championships, four National
League titles and eight division titles in 20
years as manager of the team. Following
his retirement as manager, Lasorda became
a special advisor to the chairman of the
Dodgers. One of his most memorable
accomplishments was managing the United
States to its first-ever gold medal in baseball
at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
