More About Bob Danzig . . .
Bob Danzig got his first job as an office boy at the local newspaper over 40 years ago. That job turned into a career. Eventually, he became publisher of the Albany Times Union and Knickerbocker News, and became general manager of the Hearst Newspapers nationwide. Since then, the Hearst Group has had a renaissance of talent, technology and reputation.

“Bob Danzig’s stories and passion inspired those of us in the room to continue to lead with our hearts even when they are heavy with concerns about funding, management and the ability to reach those we need to reach …not to mention the overwhelming reality that there is so much more that should be done. His opening remarks were uplifting and it was refreshing to step out of the forest …smell the raindrops on each tree branch and delight in knowing that we each do make a difference …one touch at a time!”

Barbara Bush

Director of Development, Community Residences

“Bob Danzig is one of those magic people who, when he enters a room, he fills it. And when he begins to speak, he owns it.”
