This year's TALK SHOW BOOT CAMP has a new partner, as consultant and former CLEAR CHANNEL VP of News-Talk Programming GABE HOBBS teams with DON ANTHONY's TALENTMASTERS to continue the event for its fourth year. The convention moves to the WESTIN CANAL PLACE hotel in NEW ORLEANS this year and is scheduled for NOVEMBER 16-17.
"GABE is a truly a talk guru," said ANTHONY. "I know of no one who is more respected or accomplished in the talk arena than HOBBS. His track record for discovering, developing and working with some of the biggest and most successful personalities in talk, makes him the perfect partner for TALK SHOW BOOT CAMP IV. Like our morning show event, TSBC is an instructional-based forum, where talent, including both current hosts, programmers and those wanting to crossover to talk, can learn from some of the top minds in format."
"DON's 'Boot Camp's have long been known as one of the most uniquely focused events in radio; wall to wall ideas, one-of-a-kind networking, and extremely inspirational as well," added HOBBS. "The talk radio landscape is changing rapidly. With the incredible growth of sports radio plus the inevitable diversity of talk formats on the horizon, being part of a forum that caters specifically to both current and future stars of spoken-word made this an easy choice. I feel that anyone who seriously wants to step up their game, get insight on how to manage or develop talk talent or someone who wants the opportunity of meeting and picking the minds of some of talk radio's best, this is a gathering unlike any."
