Media files by Bob Losure

  • Bob Losure: Media File 1
  • Bob Losure: Media File 2
  • "Lights Camera Success" - Bob inspires his audience with humor, stories from his years at CNN, and a look at how his successful fight against testicular cancer in his home state of Oklahoma taught him some valuable life lessons...and even led to a greater opportunity - an anchor chair at the fledgling CNN Headline News for Ted Turner in Atlanta. Bob looks at how his hospitalization in Tulsa, Oklahoma led him to become a champion for those who are faced with the fear of setbacks in life or business and how we can use laughter and a positive mindset to build the life and business we want.
  • "Media Coverage 2.0" - Bob Losure, former global CNN News Anchor, will show your organizations the secrets of how a newsroom works. You will learn how to give the media the stories it wants to generate positive local and national coverage for your organization. Also, learn to diffuse bad press and handle potential crisis situations.
  • "How Cable News is Polarizing the Media" - Bob Losure probes the shark-infested waters of opinionated broadcasters on both cable and broadcast TV, and how outrageous comments have become the norm. Bob also probes how the 24-hour cable channels have redefined 2010 election-year news, focusing not on substance, but on the mud the candidates are slinging on any particular day, and who's made the most gaffes in the past few hours.
  • "The Oklahoma I Know and Love" - Bob looks back at growing up in Tulsa, sleeping under mosquito nets in the family backyard on Army cots in the summer, and sleeping next to a floor furnace with just-washed clothes hanging above it in the winter. Bob takes a humorous and romantic look back at the Tulsa of over 40 years ago, when a pay phone at the top of a wooden grandstand was the only way to call in the score from the local baseball games to a local radio station. Bob takes us on a ride down memory lane from his first job spinning records at country station KTOW, in the middle of the night in downtown Sand Springs, and how the "action" across the street was a lot more interesting than a Conway Twitty record.

Over the past year, Bob's appearances have included his keynote, “The Time of  My Life: A Former CNN Anchor Looks Ahead as a 28-year Cancer Survivor,” before 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 your 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 the past year, Bob moderated a Delta Airlines news conference for 63 foreign journalists on the opening of new gates at JFK, and hosted the WPO/YPO National Convention at The Plaza, with speakers including financial guru Barbara Corcoran from ABC's  “Shark Tank.”                            

Bob has interviewed some of the most powerful people in America—from former Homeland Security Chief Tom Ridge to the late CBS anchor Walter Cronkite.  He's appeared as keynote speaker and emcee at several conventions in Las Vegas including OfficeMax, RadioShack, JC Bamford at the giant ConExpo event, and the Environmental Industries Association.   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.  More recently, he anchored a daily real estate newscast on the web from San Diego. Bob's range of on-camera skills have been used in television commercials nationally for Newsmax Magazine.  His voice has become familiar as narrator of  Tom Miranda's weekly Territories Wild outdoor show on ESPN2 and now on The Outdoor Channel.
