Hostess With the Mostess

She may be most famous for her stint on The View, but if you went to public school in Texas in the early '90s you probably remember Lisa Ling as one of the original teen hosts of Channel One News, the 12-minute news program with commercials pumped into schools in exchange for free TVs in every classroom. These days she's hosting National Geographic Ultimate Explorer, and her global gallivanting brings her to the wild environs of...Mountain View College? Lisa Ling speaks at 11 a.m. Thursday at MVC Performance Hall, Mountain View College, 4849 W. Illinois Ave. It's free and open to the public. Call 214-860-8685.
