St. Augustine, Fla. – On Wednesday, March 11, in the Lewis Auditorium at Flagler College,
Melanie Saltzman, reporter and producer for PBS NewsHour Weekend, will present a lecture
titled, “The Future of Food.” This event is free and open to the public.
In her role at PBS, Saltzman reports, shoots and produces on a variety of issues, including public

Some of Saltzman’s most notable work includes her production of two stories for NewsHour’s
Emmy-nominated “America Addicted” series on the opioid epidemic. She has also reported on
climate change and migration from the Marshall Islands, covered landmine victim assistance
programs in Cambodia and traveled to Kenya and Tanzania for solutions-based reports.
