Former CNN Headline News anchor and cancer survivor Bob Losure continues to expand his repertoire on-stage and on-camera with keynotes, interviews, webcasts, and hosting duties including tradeshows, debates, press conferences, fundraising galas, and more. In November, 2013, Bob hosted the Thrivent Financial National Sales Meeting at the Minneapolis Convention Center, interviewing 30 financial experts including the Wolf of Wall Street himself, Jordan Belfort, live on-camera before 2,000 Thrivent sales executives. The interviews reached a virtual audience nationwide, with questions submitted as Bob conducted his interviews.
Over the past year, Bob's appearances have included his keynote, The Time of My Life—A Former CNN Anchor Remembers Ted Turner...and Looks Ahead as a 28-year Cancer Survivor, at an evening gala of Executive Women International at the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame. His cancer survival story and how it led him to the CNN anchor chair has captivated audiences from M.D. Anderson in Houston to Provena St. Joseph's in Chicago. He also talks about the life lessons learned working for Ted Turner. As EWI President Karen Kellogg wrote, “I can see why you’re speaking and emcee skills are in such demand. What a wonderful voice you have—and you have such a natural command of the stage.”
In New York City in 2013, Bob moderated a Delta Airlines news conference for 63 foreign journalists and also hosted the WPO/YPO National Convention at The Plaza, with keynote speakers including financial guru Barbara Corcoran from ABC's Shark Tank. Bob's on-stage skills have drawn overwhelmingly praise from clients including Mercedes-Benz, OfficeMax, Novartis, Edison Electric Institute, the Outdoor Advertising Association of America, and over 130 others.
His on-camera hosting duties have included moderating a live televised 90-minute webcast for Delta Airlines from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta. Recently he gave a dramatic keynote to Memorial Health Medical Center in Savannah, GA., highlighting his cancer survival story as well as the humorous things that have happened as Bob was anchoring the news “live” to a worldwide audience.
Bob has interviewed some of the most powerful people in America—from former Homeland Security Chief Tom Ridge and retired CBS anchor Walter Cronkite to G-E Chairman Jeffrey Immelt and Cancer Treatment Centers of America Chairman Dick Stephenson. His hosting resume includes six years with the Mercedes Concours d’Elegance and seven years with the Outdoor Advertising Association of America.
During his 12 years anchoring in Atlanta at CNN, Bob also covered national stories live in the field, reporting on the Loma Prieta earthquake in San Francisco, Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega’s capture and return to Miami, and Nelson Mandela’s historic visit to Atlanta.
