Hugh Hewitt to speak at next Viewpoints event in Rancho Santa Fe

Are you often tired of hearing about politics and often wish you could hear about what makes interesting people tick? Then you will want to attend the next Viewpoints event to hear from someone who has interviewed over 10,000 interesting people from both sides of the isle and from various stations in life. Hugh Hewitt will be the one providing that perspective when he speaks to the community on Feb. 23.

Hugh Hewitt is a lawyer, law professor and Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist. He is best known as the host of his nationally-syndicated radio show which has an audience estimated at more than 2 million listeners every week and is heard in more than 120 cities across the United States. Hewitt has been a frequent guest on CNN, Fox News Network, and MSNBC, and has written for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the Los Angeles Times. He has received three Emmys for his work as co-host of the Life & Times program, a nightly news and public affairs program that aired on the Los Angeles PBS affiliate, KCET, from 1992 until 2007. He is the author of a dozen books, including two New York Times bestsellers. Hewitt is a graduate of Harvard College and the University of Michigan Law School, and has been teaching Constitutional Law at Chapman University Law School since it opened in 1995.

Hewitt realizes that every single day we think about our happiness, or the happiness of those we’re close to. Hewitt’s reflections on those he has interviewed over the years – pundits, authors and government officials from both parties – has resulted in the realization that those who were the most enjoyable to speak with are those who are happy despite their station in life. It is his reflections on individuals such as Christopher Hitchens, Michael Dell, and Justice Stephen Breyer, as well as on those he has encountered in his personal life, that has resulted in a list that Hewitt suggests are keys to happiness.
