Edward M. Kennedy, The Lion of the Senate

NPR News Special, 7 PM, KKUAZ-FM, 89.1

NPR News will provide an hour-long special looking back on Senator Edward M. Kennedy, who died last night of complications related to a cancerous brain tumor. NPR will explore Kennedy’s life – his role as a legislative lion in the Senate; his focus on civil rights and on fighting for the disenfranchised; and his personal life and struggles.

Host Linda Wertheimer will be joined by a roundtable offering political analysis on the legacy Kennedy leaves behind, with Legal Affairs Correspondent Nina Totenberg, Senior News Analyst Juan Williams, Health Policy Correspondent Julie Rovner and Political Editor Ken Rudin.
