Broadcasters Erin Andrews and
Maria Bartiromo have joined the lineup
of panelists set to speak at B&C’s
“Keynotes & Cocktails: Women of New
York” event April 20 at the Roosevelt Hotel.
“Women of New York” is an off-the-record,
afternoon networking and cocktail hour (or
three) featuring candid Q&As with top female
figures from the TV and media industry.
This is the first time the event will be held in
New York and follows the successful launch
of last summer’s “Keynotes & Cocktails:
Women of Hollywood,” featuring conversations
with Disney/ABC’s Anne Sweeney and
CBS’ Nina Tassler, among others.
Bartiromo is anchor of CNBC’s Closing
Bell With Maria Bartiromo and anchor and
managing editor of NBCU Domestic TV
Distribution’s syndicated The Wall Street
Journal Report With Maria Bartiromo. Also
an author and an Emmy award-winner,
Bartiromo has covered Wall Street for 20
years. In 1995, she became the first journalist
to report live from the floor of the
New York Stock Exchange on a daily basis.
Andrews, ESPN sports reporter and Good
Morning America correspondent, has quickly
become one of the most recognizable female
sportscasters in the business. She recently
signed a multi-year deal with ESPN to join
the College GameDay lineup and contributes
select reports to GMA throughout the year.
Andrews and Bartiromo join a speaker
lineup that already includes a list of top execs
slated for a panel discussion dubbed “Brand
Yourself”: Peggy Green, vice chairman,
ZenithOptimedia USA; Arlene Manos,
president, national advertising sales, Rainbow
Advertising Sales Corp., Rainbow Media
Holdings; Melinda Witmer, executive VP/
chief programming officer, Time Warner Cable;
and Pam Zucker, president, marketplace
ignition and innovation, MediaVest USA.
Additional speakers for “Women of New
York” will be announced.
