Journalism icon Bill Moyers has spent his professional life lifting the lid off of major news stories, both in print and on television. The 77-year-old veteran newsman already has 30 Emmy Awards, but he shows no signs that he’s planning to slow down. He’s already working on a new weekly program for American Public Television, Moyers & Company, that will debut next year. A native Texan, with several well-regarded documentary programs (Healing and the Mind, Buying the War) and bestselling books (The Language of Life, Genesis, a Living Conversation) to his credit, Moyers is coming to Houston today as part of the Progressive Forum speaker series. 7:30 p.m. Wortham Center, 501 Texas. For information, call 832-251-0706 or visit www.progressiveforumhouston.org. $14 to $120.
