Out of the Box, April 8th

Ali Velshi:

Power Within Inc. has announced that the 'Money Summit' will be held in Toronto on May 30th. It will address the present economic climate and its implications for individual Canadians. Key industry experts such as Steve Forbes, Ali Velshi and David Chilton will provide insightful direction and will share strategies on how to profit and protect one's finances in this uncertain economic environment. If you're interested in attending just follow the link.

Anderson Cooper:

○Anderson Cooper will give a public lecture at the University of Delaware on Wednesday, April 15th.

○It was also announced that Cooper will speak on Sunday, May 17th at the UCLA for the 2009 Annual Daniel Pearl Memorial Lecture. The event is co-sponsored by the Burkle Center for International Relations, the Daniel Pearl Foundation and the Yitzhak Rabin Hillel Center for Jewish Life at UCLA.

Follow Up:
Since it seems to be a slow week for public appearance announcements we'll do a follow up to one previously mentioned. We detailed Anderson's speaking engagement at Elon University in North Carolina on Tuesday at ATA yesterday. We're reposting it here, in case you missed it.

Here are a few photos from his day. To read about his discussion with communication students follow this link.
To read about his lecture and follow up questions from students follow this link or this one.

And here is a video of a portion of AC's talk. Thanks to Julie for the tip and BA for the embed.

That's it for another week. ~Phebe

I noticed Keith Olberman was no longer listed in ratings. Instead MSNBC is adding the Ed Show? What's with Keith? I was under the impression he just signed a new contract. Are they trying a new show opposite AC's spot?
If they keep Ed, AC should do amazingly well.

Annon- according to TVNewser- on Thursday night (April 9, 2009):

MSNBC is going to be airing The Ed Show twice tonight - at 6pmET and in Countdown's normal spot of 8pmET. An MSNBC insider tells us the 8pm edition will have a live first block with the remainder being the 6pm version. "This allows us the opportunity to expose Ed's show to Keith's audience," says an insider.

The reason for the programming change: a memorial service for Keith Olbermann's mother is being held and this allows his staff to attend. Marie Olbermann died last Saturday.
