KANSAS CITY — Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has been grilled repeatedly on Capitol Hill recently for the troubles continuing to roil the nation's economy.
On Sunday, he'll let the American people take a shot. Bernanke will appears on a PBS "Newshour"-sponsored town hall forum being held in Kansas City.
Forty local residents will join "Newshour" host Jim Lehrer in asking Bernanke questions. Lehrer also will ask queries e-mailed from across the U.S.
The one-hour event will be broadcast in 20-minute installments on "Newshour" on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday with a full broadcast of the forum on local PBS stations and online later.
