Keynote Speakers

Bob Schieffer

Emmy-Winning Political Journalist

One of the nation’s most-revered reporters of all time, Schieffer brings a diligent, jack-of-all-trades approach to his wide-ranging expertise. With 58 years in the news business and 46 years at CBS News, the former moderator of Face the Nation served as a steady on-air presence for many generations. He is a beloved Washington insider who, as USA Today said, “has been on a first-name basis with key DC figures for decades.” Schieffer, who held every major job at CBS News, served as the lynchpin of the network and led Face the Nation to its highest ratings in decades. Throughout his career, Schieffer has written four books, won numerous awards and covered every presidential race and nominating convention since 1972. Most recently, he was a Walter Shorenstein Media and Democracy Fellow at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.

With a career that has dealt almost exclusively with politics, Schieffer is one of few to cover all four major beats in the nation’s capital – the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department, and Capitol Hill. He has interviewed every president since Richard Nixon and moderated three presidential debates – 2004, 2008, and 2012.
