NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The Stephen F. Austin State University Department of Government will host a lecture featuring Bill Whittle at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Dugas Liberal Arts Building, Room 102. Whittle's lecture is titled "The Implications for Liberty in the Wake of the 2016 Election and President Donald J. Trump."

Whittle began his career as a freelance television editor and has worked with The Discovery Channel, The History Channel and NBC. He has written for National Review Online and the Daily Wire and is a frequent contributor to Breitbart news.

In addition to serving as video producer for PJ Media, Whittle is co-founder of the film production company Declaration Entertainment, which released its first film, "The Arroyo," in 2014. He narrates for The Blaze, a multi-media network founded by conservative pundit Glenn Beck.

"Bill Whittle is a noted conservative pundit and blogger," said Dr. Donald Gooch, assistant professor in SFA's Department of Government. "He was instrumental in the early days of the Tea Party and can offer the SFA and Nacogdoches communities his perspective of the 2016 election and the prospects for the near future."
