Biography

Former Atlanta-based CNN Anchor Bob Losure, highly regarded as a corporate spokesman and keynote speaker with a strong message on living each day to its fullest....is now back living in the city of Atlanta where he launched his global broadcasting career. His list of blue-chip clients as an on-camera spokesperson continues to grow: Delta Airlines, BellSouth, Home Depot, UPS, Norfolk Southern, and Georgia Power, to name just a few.

In April, 2014, Mr. Losure hosted the Express Employment Professionals' Leadership Simulcast in Los Angeles before a one-thousand-member audience, with thousands viewing at 175 other downlink sites across North America. He shared the stage with ESPN's Dick Vitale, Whole Foods Founder John Mackey and humorist Christine Cashen. Segments from that performance can be found in a google search of Bob's name on YouTube.

Recently, Bob Losure emceed three eight-hour on-camera webcasts of the Thrivent Financial Sales Meeting at the Minneapolis Convention Center, doing webcast interviews with 30 financial experts including the Wolf of Wall Street, Jordan Belfort. In New York City, he hosted a news conference before 63 foreign journalists for Delta Airlines at Times Square. Previously, Bob hosted a town hall meeting with Delta CEO Richard Anderson and 215 Delta/Northwest flight attendants at Delta headquarters in Atlanta.

During his 12 years anchoring at CNN, Bob's “live” reporting skills in the field gave viewers around the world a vivid account of Nelson Mandela's historic visit to Atlanta, Hurricane Hugo's devastation in South Carolina, and the Federal Prison riot in south Atlanta. In hiskeynote speech, he gives some simple steps to conquer those dream killers--Fear, Risk, Adversity, and Change, in the workplace and in life. Bob overcame those obstacles as a cancer patient fighting for his life while hospitalized at St. Francis Medical Center in Tulsa to take the anchor chair in Atlanta from the time of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster through the Persian Gulf War and the O.J. Simpson trial.

In June, 2014 he delivered a keynote speech on overcoming adversity to an audience of 300 cancer survivors and caregivers at Houston's Memorial Hermann Medical Center, recalling the life lessons he learned from Ted Turner, and how much Turner's own courage in the face of personal and financial disaster gave Bob some valuable lessons into never giving up. In his speech, Bob explores the early days of CNN in Atlanta in the historic four-story building at 1050 Techwood Drive when Ted was making his nocturnal visits from his top-floor apartment to the CNN cafe in the basement of the building where Bob anchored overnight.

Bob Losure lets his audience know what it's like to interview icons like the legendary CBS newsman Walter Cronkite, and he speaks of his friendship with three-time cancer survivor and CNN anchor colleague Don Harrison, who saved CNN Headline News from an on-air disaster in refusing to announce in the heat of the moment that President George Herbert Walker Bush had died in Tokyo in 1990.

In November Bob moderates a “super session” for the Information Security and Risk Management Conference at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. The panel will discuss the skills shortage in cybersecurity, with participants from the S3 member organizations including CompTIA, ISSA, GIAC, and ISACA.

Bob Losure was inducted into Pi Kappa Fraternity's 'Order of West Range' in 2005. It's the fraternity's highest alumni honor, and given to only one other American journalist, former ABC newsman Ted Koppel.
