ASHLAND, OH - Best-selling author and popular media personality Brian Kilmeade will speak at Mansfield’s Renaissance Theatre on Friday, Nov. 3, at 7:30 p.m. at the Ashbrook Center’s Second Annual Peter W. Schramm Memorial Lecture. 

Kilmeade is well known as co-host of the popular “Fox & Friends” news program and host of the nationally syndicated radio program, “Kilmeade and Friends.”

Kilmeade will speak on his new book, “Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans: The Battle That Shaped America’s Destiny,” and a book signing will follow. 

Tickets for general seating in the Renaissance Theatre are available for $20 each. To purchase tickets or obtain additional information about sponsorship opportunities, contact Carrie Clever at the Ashbrook Center at 419.289.5411 or email cclever@ashbrook.org.

This event, hosted by the Ashbrook Center, is the second annual Peter W. Schramm Memorial Lecture sponsored by Samuel H. and Maria Miller and is co-sponsored by WMAN Radio. 

Not many broadcasters can say they are on the air for six hours a day, five days a week, but that is exactly what Brian Kilmeade has been doing since 2006. After joining Fox News in 1997, he was soon named co­host of Fox & Friends, where he still thrives alongside the extraordinarily talented Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt. Together they have powered their way to the top spot in morning cable TV. After Fox & Friends from 6 ­- 9 a.m. ET, Kilmeade has the privilege of hosting his nationally syndicated radio show, “The Brian Kilmeade Show” on Fox News Talk from 9­12 noon.

Every weekday morning, Kilmeade provides viewers with the latest on the breaking news, sports, politics, and entertainment. During his tenure at Fox News, he has developed the ability to interview and provide insight into newsmakers, politicians, celebrities, and athletes. His radio show features many Fox personalities, big-name guests and somehow he still manages to cover the news of the day with seriousness and a smile.

Kilmeade has written four books, three of which were New York Times bestsellers: ”The Games Do Count”, “It’s How You Play the Game” and more recently, “George Washington’s Secret Six” and “Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates” co­ written with Don Yaeger. His fifth book, “Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans,” will be released Oct. 24, 2017, and he again teamed up with Yaeger with the hope of mirroring their previous success.

Prior to joining FNC, Kilmeade was an anchor/reporter on NEWSPORT TV. While in Los Angeles, he was an anchor on KHSC­TV and a host on all sports radio’s XTRA AM690. His duties on XTRA included co­hosting The Jim Brown Show where he struck up a friendship that still flourishes today. One his first jobs was as a correspondent for Channel One, a daily national high school television news program. Along the way, he also managed to fit in 10 years of stand­up comedy experience.

He currently resides in Massapequa, N.Y., where he grew up, with his wife and three kids. When he is not working, you can often catch him on the soccer field watching or coaching. He graduated from LIU­CW Post with a B.A. in Communications in 1986 where he also played soccer.

Dedicated by President Reagan in 1983, the Ashbrook Center, an independent center at Ashland University, restores and strengthens the capacities of the American people for constitutional self-government through its educational programs for teachers, students, and citizens. Ashbrook’s teacher resource website, TeachingAmericanHistory.org offers more than 2,500 primary source documents, searchable by academic standards in all 50 states, and interactive teaching tools that teachers can utilize at no cost.
