The Present and Future of Newspapers
November 13, 2014
  Speaker: Ken Herman

Introduced by Lion Robert Seidel


Ken Herman began his journalism career in 1975 at The Lufkin Daily News in East Texas. In 1977, he joined The Associated Press in Dallas. He later worked for AP in Harlingen and Austin. Herman was part of the AP’s Capitol staff in Austin from 1979 to 1988, when he became Austin Bureau Chief for The Houston Post. When the Post folded in 1995 (not his fault), Herman joined the American-Statesman as Capitol Bureau Chief.

In 2001, after covering George W. Bush’s presidential campaign, Herman went to Washington for a six-month stint as Cox Newspapers White House correspondent. He returned to Austin in June 2001 to resume covering state government and politics.

In June 2004, he returned to Washington to cover the Bush re-election campaign. From January 2005 through February 2009 he was Cox Newspapers White House correspondent.

Herman is now a columnist for the American-Statesman.
