About Keynote Speaker Bob Losure

About Bob Losure:

With the Presidential campaigns in high gear, former CNN anchor Bob Losure brought his interviewing skills to the Bayou state in 2016 to moderate a one-hour session with political strategists James Carville and Mary Matalin at the Industrial Asset Management Council Convention in New Orleans.  It marked Bob’s 200th appearance as emcee/keynote speaker.

Among the highlights of Bob’s hosting and emcee work recently–the Privacy Xchange Forum Cyber-Security Conference at the J.W. Marriott Camelback Resort in Scottsdale, the ExpressPros Leadership Simulcast before an audience of 1,000 in Thousand Oaks, California, and the World Crane and Transport Summit Convention at the Biltmore in Miami.  Bob recently  anchored two days of eight-hour webcasts with on-camera interviews for Thrivent Financial from the Minneapolis Convention Center.

As a testicular cancer survivor, Bob has keynoted on “Overcoming Adversity” for Accelerent Inc. in Kansas City, M.D. Anderson in Houston, Duke University Medical Center, and Provena St. Joseph’s Hospital in suburban Chicago.  The native Oklahoman recently keynoted on “CNN…Then and Now”, in Cincinnati before the CPCU Society chapter, sharing stories of his anchoring and reporting career from the time of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster through the first Persian Gulf War, the O.J. Simpson trial, and beyond.

Bob overcame huge obstacles. enduring three operations and three rounds of chemotherapy to audition at CNN in Atlanta and get the anchor position.  During his years there, the veteran broadcaster went on-location for CNN Newsource to cover Nelson Mandela’s historic visit to Atlanta, Hurricane Hugo’s devastation, and the Loma Prieta earthquake in San Francisco.

Mr. Losure’s emcee skills are highly regarded by major associations and corporations, including OfficeMax, RadioShack, Mercedes-Benz, and the Outdoor Advertising Association of America.  His guests on-stage have included Forbes Magazine’s Steve Forbes, anchorman Walter Cronkite, inspirational speaker and artist Erik Wahl, ABC Television Shark Tank’s  Barbara Corcoran, and Presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Bob attended the University of Oklahoma and what today is the Gaylord School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and has been inducted into the Communications Hall of Fame at his alma mater, The University of Tulsa.  He’s been awarded his fraternity’s highest national alumni honor, The Order of West Range—given to only one other national journalist—former ABC broadcaster Ted Koppel.
