Ted Koppel to Visit USD

SAN DIEGO, CA: The College of Arts and Sciences at the University of San Diego and Warwick’s Books proudly present Ted Koppel, longtime Nightline anchor and author of the new book Lights Out.

In Lights Out, Emmy Award winner Koppel reveals that a major cyberattack on America’s power grid is not only possible but likely, that it would be devastating and that the United States is shockingly unprepared. Koppel, a 42-year veteran of ABC News, was anchor and managing editor of Nightline from 1980 to 2005. New York University recently named Koppel one of the top 100 American journalists of the past 100 years.
