Katie Pavlich, editor of the conservative website, will speak at Northwestern next week as College Republicans’ winter speaker, the group announced Tuesday night at its weekly meeting.

Pavlich, a conservative author and political commentator, graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Arts in broadcast journalism and currently serves as a rotating panelist on Fox News Channel’s daily show, “Outnumbered.”

In 2013, the Conservative Political Action Conference named her Blogger of the Year for her work at, as a Fox News contributor and 2012 book, “Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Cover-Up.”

“NUCR is honored to be bringing such a dynamic, up­-and-­coming speaker as Ms. Pavlich,” the group said in a statement. “(We) are proud of the tradition of bringing highly informed commentators for our annual winter speaker series, and announce Ms. Pavlich in the confidence that her speech is a continuation of that tradition.”

Associated Student Government and the Young America’s Foundation provided funding for the speaker, according to the news release. Pavlich will talk 8 p.m. in Swift Hall next Monday at the free event, which is open to the public.
