General Session: Industry Panel, Moderator: Gene Randall
Date: September 19, 2007
Gene Randall, award winning journalist, will be moderating an industry panel during the Opening Session at the Electro E-Biz Forum 2007.
Randall’s award winning journalism career can be measured by the major stories he covered, both in the United States and abroad.
Randall’s professional broadcast journalism career can be measured by the major stories he covered; among them: the Solidarity strikes in Poland in 1980, the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the liberation of Kuwait in 1991, and daily coverage of three U.S. Presidential Campaigns: 1988, 1992 and 1996. As Moscow Bureau Chief for NBC News in the early eighties, Randall chronicled the beginning of the end of the Communist Party in the Soviet Union. At CNN, he turned his focus to domestic politics. In 1992, Variety named him "Best Floor Reporter" at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. In the 2000 Campaign, Gene hosted CNN’s celebrated "This Week In Politics, "a favorite with campaign insiders. With a broadcasting career that spanned four decades and much of the world, Gene Randall’s speeches combine historic moments he has witnessed, the offbeat incidents that never made the evening news, the current political scene, and the effects of September 11, 2001 on our political fabric.
