You’ve seen him as the host of “Cold Case Files” “American Justice” & “Investigative Reports.” He has anchored The CBS Evening News and to Chicagoan’s he is revered as one half of the greatest news tag-team in television history along with Walter Jacobson and it was his investigative efforts the broke the story of “Agent Orange.” You’ve heard him as the voice of “Anchorman” and now as the announcer for “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!” on NPR.
He has an armful of Emmy Awards, two Peabody Awards and perhaps the most distinctive voice in journalism. His reputation as a reporter, producer and documentary is legendary in our business. He is also a rancher and founder Tallgrass Beef, that raises grass-fed, hormone free organic beef.
I have known Bill Kurtis since we sat next to each other at the Chicago Theater back in 1989 when John Denver presented his “Higher Ground” event, a look at the ways human impact the planet and each other, and most importantly what can be done to help create a sustainable future.
When I created the “Earth Matters” concept, a short form radio program designed to inform, entertain and inspire listeners to learn more about the planet we live on and the challenges we face from climate change, loss of species and habitat, there was only one voice that could deliver that message.
Join us tomorrow evening April 4th @ 5:30pm Northeastern Illinois University 5500 N. St. Louis Ave in Chicago. Keynote is sponsored by the Green Business Conference-admission is free.
We look forward to seeing you. #earthmatters
