Murray Hosts “A Conversation with Olivia Nuzzi: The Future of American Politics and the Press” March 29

Join Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, in a discussion with Olivia Nuzzi, one of the nation’s highest profile political reporters, about the state of the news media and how it covers political issues and players. The virtual event is free and open to the public, and will take place on Monday, March 29 at 6:30 p.m. To attend, guests must register.

Nuzzi is currently New York magazine’s Washington correspondent. She grew up in Monmouth County, NJ, cutting her journalistic teeth with local outlets while still in high school. Nuzzi is known as a tenacious reporter who pursues the odd and unusual angles in today’s top political stories, writing with a unique, unfiltered voice. She once scored an impromptu exclusive Oval Office interview with Donald Trump and has written about the challenges of texting with Rudy Giuliani. She is currently working with Ryan Lizza on a book about the 2020 election.

Murray was named the Monmouth University Polling Institute’s founding director in 2005. He frequently appears as a commentator on polling and politics for regional and national outlets. During federal election years, Murray also serves as an exit poll analyst for the NBC News Decision Desk.
