New York, NY (PRWEB) January 31, 2008
Famed TV interviewer Charlie Rose will present the opening keynote at Media Relations Summit 2008 in San Francisco's Westin St. Francis Hotel, 9AM Monday, April 7. The conference, for PR and corporate communications professionals, features 52 sessions and more than 100 journalists, PR technologists and media relations experts.
Tying into the theme of the conference--The Power of Story: New Media, New Technologies, a New Narrative for PR--Mr. Rose will provide his perspective on "The Art of the Story: Finding the Heart of Drama."
Rose, who has interviewed hundreds of politicians, actors, writers, artists, celebrities and newsmakers, will himself be interviewed for the keynote presentation by PR industry executive, Howard Rubenstein, CEO of Rubenstein Associates, a prominent New York public relations firm.
"Few practicing journalists understand the art of storytelling as well as Charlie Rose," said Mr. Rubenstein, who has known the broadcaster for more than 15 years. "His interviews are invariably dramatic and provocative."
Mr. Rose is one of the most accomplished interviewers on television. His career has spanned responsibilities as managing editor for the series Bill Moyers' International Report, executive producer of Bill Moyers' Journal, and later Moyer's series U.S.A: People and Politics, where his "A Conversation with Jimmy Carter" won a Peabody Award in 1976.
From 1984-1990, Mr. Rose worked as anchor of CBS News Nightwatch, where his interview with Charles Manson won an Emmy Award. His most enduring achievement, the Charlie Rose show, premiered in 1991 and is syndicated on hundreds of stations nationwide.
Other keynote speakers at Media Relations Summit 2008 will be renowned blogger, Robert Scoble, who will speak on "The Future of Social and Consumer-Generated Media"; Walt Disney Parks's Global PR chief Duncan Wardle, who will address "The Future of PR: How New Technologies Will Transform the Way We Communicate--as Consumers and as PR Professionals"; and IBM web and search expert Mike Moran, who will speak on "Do It Wrong Quickly: What Corporations Need from PR in Today's Transforming Marketplace."
