Nationally syndicated radio talk-show host Steve Deace is scheduled to speak at an open-to-the-public event Friday night in Carroll.

Deace is slated to speak at 7 p.m. at the Santa Maria Winery & Vineyard. There is no charge to attend.

Bill Fish, an organizer with the Carroll Area Tea Party, said Deace will deliver a speech that focuses heavily on the Affordable Care Act - federal health-care reform - followed by a question-and-answer session.

"There's a lot of unknowns," Fish said. "This is going to be very educational."

Deace lives in West Des Moines, but his radio show has a national reach with affiliates in New York City, Washington, D.C., Seattle, Houston, Fresno, Calif., and dozens of other cities.

"I've known Steve for some time when he was doing the local show in Des Moines," Fish said.

Fish said Deace is coming to Carroll at no cost.

A Des Moines native, Deace cut his teeth covering sports before moving into politics.
