UPDATE: Newswoman Hoda Kotb, who was originally scheduled to speak on March 14 in a live interactive broadcast, is now unable to make the event do to commitments surrounding her recent adoption of a child. She will be replaced by Pulitzer prize-winning author Charles Duhigg.

Duhigg's first book, "The Power of Habit," spent 165 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and has been translated into 40 languages. His latest book, "Smarter Faster Better," explores the science of productivity and explains that how we think can be as important as what we think. His address will be seen at 5 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium.

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) – Two national broadcast journalists will accept questions from a nationwide audience at an event broadcast in March at the College of Southern Idaho – and you’re invited to participate.

Each of the two televised presentations will feature celebrity broadcasters in which they will share stories and experiences from their personal lives and profession. They also will answer questions in real time as audience members post them through Twitter or Facebook.
