Today’s FORA.tv front page showcases the opening program from the Chautauqua Institution, featuring eminent sports journalist Frank Deford. I had the opportunity to attend the event, the first of a weeklong series of programs on Sports in America. For the first time in the 134 year history of America’s oldest public forum, you will be able to watch programs from all nine weeks of this year’s series, on demand. Frank’s speech is introduced by Tom Becker, Chautauqua’s President. We will run excerpts from a video interview I held with Tom on the history of the Institution, and its unique appeal and place in American history. Enjoy the season. Better yet, go up for a week yourself sometime. Visit their website at www.ciweb.org.
