SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Students wanting some balance to liberal filmmaker Michael Moore's appearance next month at Utah Valley State College will get it.

The college is expected to announce today which conservative -- Michael Reagan or Sean Hannity -- will speak there.

The college's student government has drawn criticism for using student fees to book the "Fahrenheit 9/11" director. Now student leaders plan to use any extra money from the 40-thousand dollar appearance to pay for an appearance by either Reagan or Hannity.

Meantime, tickets to see Moore continue to sell quickly. So far, more than 35-hundred tickets have been sold. That's not including the college students who get in free at the McKay Events Center which seats eight-thousand.
