Confirmed: Janet Parshall to speak at CCV’s banquet, March 27

This good news just in, and we wanted to let you know immediately:

Janet Parshall, popular host of a nationally syndicated conservative values talk show, author, and one of the most sought-after, dynamic speakers on the pro-family circuit, will deliver the keynote address at CCV’s 23rd Annual Spring Partnership Banquet on Tuesday evening, March 27.

“This is nothing short of a scheduling miracle,” said CCV’s president, Phil Burress.  “Praise God!”

Tony Snow, Cincinnati native and Press Secretary to President George W. Bush had been engaged to deliver CCV’s keynote address but was forced to cancel due to a change in the President’s itinerary.

“To engage a speaker of Janet’s caliber on such short notice was a long shot,” said Burress.

“We located Janet in Orlando, where she was appearing as opening night keynote speaker and session moderator at the National Religious Broadcasters’ Annual Convention,” Burress explained.  “Within 48 hours she was able to clear her schedule and called to advise us that she would be delighted to join us.”

Burress repeated, “This is amazing!”

Janet Parshall’s America originates from Washington, D.C. and airs Monday through Friday on over 100 stations nationwide.  The three-hour drive-time show has been nominated for the National Religious Broadcasters Talk Show of the Year award in 1996, 1997, 1999, 2002, and 2007.  Host Janet has been profiled as one of the “Top 100 Talkers” in Talk Magazine, the leading trade publication of the talk show industry, every year since 1998.

An articulate and witty spokesperson for the family, Janet has been called on to appear on numerous national television and radio programs, including Crossfire, Hardball, Nightline, the Larry King Show, Donahue, The 700 Club, Hannity & Colmes and Late Night with Aaron Brown.

In February 2005, she was selected by President George W. Bush to represent the White House in the capacity of public delegate to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.

Joining Parshall on stage in the role of Master of Ceremonies will be Cincinnati’s own NFL Hall-of-Famer and children’s advocate, Anthony Munoz.  As respected in the pro-family arena as he is in professional sports circle, Munoz currently devotes much of his time to the Anthony Munoz Foundation, which encourages and equips young people from all socio-economic backgrounds to develop their full physical, mental and spiritual potential.

The Spring Partnership Banquet is CCV’s primary fundraising event.  Donations stemming from the event are critical to the organization’s planning and budgeting process.

“But the banquet is so much more than just a fundraising event,” says CCV’s vice president of operations and the event’s coordinator, Jerry Lyon.

“It’s the one opportunity that we have each year to meet with so many of our friends in a relaxed setting to review the victories – which they have helped make possible – and to lay out our vision for the year ahead.”

“In fact,” Lyon notes, “even with stellar keynote speakers on our programs, in evaluations of past banquets, Phil’s multi-media President’s Report still has ranked as the true highlight.   Folks leave refreshed and challenged to hear what can be accomplished when we work together in His strength.”

For the fifth consecutive year, the Spring Partnership Banquet will be held in the Schiff Banquet and Conference Center in the Cintas Center on the campus of Xavier University.
