David Gregory, renowned journalist and former moderator of NBC's Meet the Press; will present the keynote address at the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce's 2015 Business Summit and Annual Meeting, presented by Bingham Greenebaum Doll, on July 27.
David Gregory's career in journalism began when he was 18. Over the last 25 years, his work has taken him across the country and around the world. Most recently, he served as the moderator of Meet the Press at NBC News, the capstone to a long career at NBC. He contributed anchoring duties to all the network's major programs including Today and Nightly News. He also anchored a politics program on MSNBC called "Race for the White House" during the historic 2008 campaign.
In addition, Gregory served as the network's chief White House correspondent during the Presidency of George W. Bush. He traveled with the President Bush on Sept. 11, 2001 and during Bush's first visit to Ground Zero after the attacks. From the White House, he covered the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and earned a reputation as the toughest questioner in the press corps.
Gregory is the author of the forthcoming book How's Your Faith?, an examination of his own faith journey and those of others, including Bush, who asked Gregory the question that became the title of the book. The book, which will be published by Simon & Schuster in 2015, features interviews with well-known religious leaders, including Cardinal Tim Dolan and the evangelical preacher Joel Osteen.
Now in its tenth year, the Business Summit and Annual Meeting, scheduled for July 27 and 28 at the Downtown Marriott Louisville, provides an opportunity for business leaders throughout the Commonwealth to discuss the issues related to the local, national and international economies. The Kentucky Chamber's signature event has consistently brought renowned journalists, political analysts and speakers to the Business Summit with the intent to enhance the conversations had during the two-day think tank.
Additional speakers for the two-day Business Summit will be announced in the weeks to come. Visit the Kentucky Chamber's website for more details or to register.
