Posted Friday, March 21st 2014 @ 11am by WTVN Newsroom

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)-- MSNBC host Chris Matthews will be the featured speaker for the spring commencement at Ohio State University.

Matthews is host of "Hardball" on MSNBC. He'll address about 10,000 graduates at Ohio Stadium on Sunday, May 4.

“On behalf of Ohio State, it is my pleasure to welcome one of the nation’s most experienced political journalists as our spring commencement speaker,” said Ohio State Interim President Joseph A. Alutto.“A longtime public servant, New York Times best-selling author and television news anchor, Chris Matthews will offer a unique perspective on our country’s history and future.”

Matthews began his television career in 1994 as host of a two-hour nightly program on the NBC-owned America’s Talking network. In 1997, he launched “Hardball,” now on MSNBC. He has been on the air every weekday night since.

Yes, they checked with me first and I said it is ok.

I do not know who is Chris Matthews but I trust OSU to hire who they want.

Just think. If OSU were actually a good school, they could have gotten Rachel Maddow as commencement speaker.
