Edward Snowden to video chat with CU-Boulder students Tuesday; tickets are sold out

BOULDER, Colo. - Tickets to see Edward Snowden speak live via video chat on Feb. 16 at the University of Colorado-Boulder are sold out.

Ticket prices ranged from $2 for students to $20 for the general public.

The event Tuesday night will be moderated by Ron Suskind, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and former Wall Street Journal reporter. Audience members will be able to ask Snowden questions, according to our partners at the Daily Camera.

The video chat will take place inside Macky Auditorium on the Boulder campus, and is scheduled to run from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Snowden, a former NSA contractor, is known around the world for leaking classified documents about the U.S. government's massive surveillance program. He sought asylum in Russia after releasing the documents, where he currently remains. He faces several charges, including violating the Espionage Act of 1917 and theft of government property. 

The Distinguished Speaker Series at CU confirmed they are paying $56,000 for the event (including the moderator.)
