SEARCY, AR -- Radio and Television host Sean Hannity was in Searcy for a lecture at Harding University Thursday night.
Hannity arrived early and did his radio program "The Sean Hannity Show'' live from the Harding University Campus, and concluded his evening by participating in his Fox News television program "Hannity and Colmes" live from campus as well.
Sean Hannity is one of the most recognizable names in news and talk in radio as a conservative voice for the people of America.
"I felt like he would be a good fit for Harding, particularly for the students because of his energy, youth, and values... what he represents when he does speak," said Bob Reely, with Harding University.
"I love to go to places where they share my values, the things that I believe in. I think one of the most important things today is how we're raising our kids. I believe in the values of the university, which are God, faith, family and country... which are all Hannity values," said Sean Hannity.
Hannity is known best as being the guy to call it like he sees it, and so on Thursday night, before a crowd of hundreds, that's what he did.
"The country is in many ways coming to grips with it, but it's an unfortunate truth: the fact that we have an enemy that wants to destroy this country," said Hannity.
Here in Region 8 we have just sent our soldiers off to battle, and Hannity said we should do everything we can to support those soldiers and their families during this difficult time and put politics aside for another day.
"We have a lot of brave men and women, sons and daughters of America and Arkansas and all around the country that are supporting us. We ought not be politicizing this because the stakes are so high," said Hannity.
Sean Hannity is involved in a program that offers full college scholarships to any child of any service member that's been severely injured or killed during the War on Terror. That scholarship is called the "Freedom Alliance scholarship Fund".
