Alec Hosterman, who teaches Communication Studies at IU South Bend, has been invited to the White House to watch the President Obama's speech from the Eisenhower building and then to use social media to comment on it.
When Hosterman applied he said he never dreamed he would actually be chosen.
“I got the invite and I know how lottery winners feel,” he said “…I was aghast. I vetted it thinking it was fake, but it was real.”
We'll be following Hosterman Tuesday as he tweets and posts on Facebook about the State of the Union. And, of course, you can watch the president’s speech live on WSBT.com and WSBT-TV Tuesday night at 9 p.m. EDT.LINK: twitter.com/alechosterman
