GAMBIER — Longtime journalist Mike Curtin will visit Kenyon College Monday, Jan. 28, at 7 p.m. to discuss the shifting media landscape in America.

He also served from 2013–16 in the Ohio House of Representatives, representing the 17th District.

Curtin is a co-author of the Ohio Politics Almanac, now in its third edition, published by Kent State University Press. A lifelong resident of Columbus, Curtin earned his bachelor’s degree in journalism from the Ohio State University.
