Sacramento Speakers Series announced today that News10, Sacramento’s local ABC affiliate, will be the exclusive television sponsor of the upcoming 2014-2015 season. Popular News10 anchor Cristina Mendonsa will act as the general moderator for the high school students program entitled ‘Share the Vision’ that provides tickets and a private audience with our speakers. Ms. Mendonsa will also moderate the Question and Answer segment of the evening with the speakers.
This exciting season kicks off Tuesday, September 23, 2014 with food pioneer Alice Waters during Sacramento’s own Farm to Fork week. The lineup continues with former Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates, world renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma, television journalist Anderson Cooper, long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad and New York Times columnist David Brooks.
Managing principal and attorney Mitchell Ostwald said he is “proud of the partnership with News10 ABC, whose dedicated staff and management present timely, accurate and thorough information to the Sacramento community, and am especially excited about Ms. Mendonsa’s participation. Her intellect and personality will bring a new level of engagement between audience and speaker.”
Celebrating its 10th anniversary season, Sacramento Speakers Series offers an impressive list of leaders, authors, scientists, and visionaries, each chosen on the basis of career achievements, unique expertise in a particular field of endeavor, and ability to communicate their particular passion to the audience. The Sacramento Speakers Series is a community lecture series that provides an open forum for a free discussion of timely and important issues by nationally acclaimed speakers. Ostwald described the series as “an extraordinary community experience that gives our patrons an opportunity to hear about and question renowned and influential people from a wide variety of backgrounds on an even wider variety of topics.”
