Ivy Tech President Tom Snyder to be guest on CNN’s Your Bottom Line

INDIANAPOLIS –Ivy Tech Community College President Thomas J. Snyder has been invited to be a guest on CNN’s Your Bottom Line.

The show, hosted by CNN’s Christine Romans, will also include Dr. Nancy Zimpher, Chancellor of the State University System of New York, and Dr. King Alexander, President of the California State University-Long Beach.

The show is scheduled to air on Saturday, February 4, at 9:30 a.m. (EST) and will focus on college affordability.

Snyder, along with Zimpher and Alexander, will discuss their participation in President Barack Obama’s White House Roundtable on Affordability and Productivity in Higher Education which took place on December 5 in Washington, D.C.

Only a small group of college presidents were invited to participate and directly engage with President Obama in a candid conversation designed to explore how America can best restore its leadership in higher education attainment by removing barriers to college access, affordability and success for students.

Romans’ coverage focuses on the latest breaking developments in the current economic crises and what they mean to Americans and their money. She is known for her “Romans’ Numeral” segment where she deconstructs complex stories and explains what they mean for the viewer. When President Obama talks about the economic crisis and the road ahead, CNN relies on Romans for her perspective and instant analysis of the administration’s efforts to rescue the American economy.

In addition, Romans’ money reports are featured regularly on CNN’s American Morning and her reporting is often featured on CNN International.
