WASHINGTON, Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Hillsdale College today announced the dedication of the new Boyle Radio Studio at the Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship in conjunction with the Center's 5-year anniversary. Nationally-syndicated radio host Hugh Hewitt will conduct the inaugural broadcast from the studio from 6 to 9 p.m. EST with special guests Fred Barnes, Morton Kondracke and Hillsdale College President Larry P. Arnn.  

The Boyle Studio is dedicated in tribute to Dr. Paul Tudor Jones and Paul Tudor Jones Boyle, and is part of ongoing renovations at Hillsdale College's Kirby Center, located at 227 Massachusetts Ave. in Washington, D.C. The Boyle Radio Studio is fully integrated with the college's radio station on its Michigan campus.

"The Kirby Center and all that it does is an extension of the teaching mission of Hillsdale College," said Matthew Spalding, vice president and dean of educational programs for Hillsdale College at the Kirby Center. "I can think of no better way to mark the first five years of the Kirby Center and expand our educational efforts than to have our good friend Hugh Hewitt inaugurate our new studio by broadcasting to his national audience from Hillsdale's Washington, D.C. campus."
