Great Conversations: Ripken and Wallace go head-to-head at St. John’s College

St. John’s College will host Baltimore Orioles legend Cal Ripken Jr. and veteran journalist Chris Wallace March 5 as part of the annual Great Conversations series.

“In this series, we bring together two recognized and accomplished voices with widely differing careers, interviewing each other about what it took to reach the top of their professions,” says Mary Wolf,  a longtime former NBC News producer and Friends of St. John’s College board member. “It should make for a fascinating and ‘great’ conversation.”

Ripken played for the Orioles from 1981-2001, was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2007, and holds the record for most consecutive games played, earning him the title “The Iron Man.” Wallace has worked in broadcast journalism since 1975, winning three Emmy awards and the Dupont-Columbia Silver Baton award and, for the last 15 years, serving as anchor of Fox News Sunday.

The event, presented by the Friends of St. John’s College, begins at 7 p.m. in the Francis Scott Key Auditorium on the college campus. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. General admission tickets cost $60, and proceeds from the event support the St. John’s scholarship fund.
Past Great Conversations participants include journalist Tom Brokaw and Admiral Mike Mullen, former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, in 2017, and  journalists Andrea Mitchell of NBC News and Judy Woodruff of PBS NewsHour in 2018.
