Distinguished Alumnus and Current CEO of Vision TV to Deliver Talk at Trent University


Bill Roberts to Discuss Faith and the Media on March 21

Wednesday, March 15, 2006, Peterborough

Trent University is pleased to welcome Mr. Bill Roberts, President and CEO of VisionTV, back to his alma mater for a talk on Faith and the Media on Tuesday, March 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the Champlain College Council Chambers on the Symons Campus.

Mr. Roberts' timely talk, entitled "Faith and the Media", will explore the unique challenges and insights that he has faced and discovered in a career dedicated to small-market broadcasting.

Mr. Roberts holds several communications, public policy and business degrees, including a BA from Trent University, an MBA from St. Mary's University and an MA from the Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris, France. Currently, he is the President and CEO of VisionTV, the only multi-faith and multicultural television network in the world. 

Prior to his appointment at Vision TV, Roberts was Secretary General of the North American Broadcasters Association (NABA), a non-profit organization that serves as the voice of North American broadcasters on global issues. In this role, he managed the secretariat of the World Broadcasting Unions, and played an active part in organizing the United Nations World Television Forum on the Impact of Television on Peace and Development.

The move to NABA followed eight years with TVOntario, first as Senior Managing Director of External Relations, and then as Senior Director-General of International Affairs. Roberts has also worked with the Canadian Association of Broadcasters (CAB) as Senior Vice-President, Television, and with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) as a Senior Policy Analyst.

Mr. Roberts' talk will run from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The event is free and all are welcome to attend.
