DENTON (UNT), Texas -- Andrea Tantaros, once described by The Washington Times as "the most pragmatic personality" on Fox News Channel's "The Five" for "calm, yet reasoned, personality mixed with a quick tongue and biting sense of humor," will speak at University of North Texas Kuehne Speaker Series on National Security spring luncheon May 12 (Tuesday).
The event begins at noon at the Hyatt Regency Dallas, 300 Reunion Blvd. Tickets are $75 for individuals, with reservations for a table of eight costing $1,000. Sponsorship opportunities are available. Tickets may be purchased at the Kuehne Speaker Series website.
The UNT Kuehne Speaker Series was created in fall 2013 with support from UNT alumnus Ernie W. Kuehne, a 1966 graduate who is the president and board chairman of Kuehne Oil Co.
The series showcases UNT's nationally and internationally recognized programs on national and human security, and faculty members who are engaged in research related to national and human security issues. Past speakers were retired Admiral James Stavridis, retired Gen. Michael Hayden, Robert D. Kaplan and retired Gen. Keith B. Alexander.
Tantaros joined Fox News Channel as a contributor in 2010 after working on several high-profile political campaigns. She was the communications director for former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld when Weld was the Libertarian candidate in the 2006 New York governor's race against eventual winner Eliot Spitzer. Tantaros is also credited with helping former National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Thomas Reynolds secure a narrow re-election victory during the scandal-plagued 2006 election cycle.
She also served as a press secretary to Republican leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives, crafting and executing media strategy for the Republican majority.
On Fox News Channel, she is a rotating co-host of "The Five," one of the network's highest rated shows. Since May 2014, she has also rotated as part of the ensemble of "Outnumbered," which features four female panelists and one male panelist discussing top news stories. From 2012-2013, Tantaros had a nationally syndicated radio talk show, "The Andrea Tantaros Show." In addition, she was a syndicated columnist for the New York Daily News.
Tantaros is a graduate of Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and the University of Paris.
