Kansas Chamber Announces - 2018 Annual Dinner Keynote Speaker
"John Stossel began his career as a business-bashing consumer reporter calling for government regulation," said Alan Cobb, Kansas Chamber President and CEO. "But when he saw that regulation caused newproblems, he woke up and started reporting on what free markets create: prosperity, innovation, and choice. It's what the Kansas Chamber advocates for on behalf of our members. They look forward to hearing about his vision for our country and what we should be doing in Kansas to grow our state's economy faster and to create more jobs for our communities."
After 28 years on ABC's 20/20, Stossel joined Fox Business Network to host his own show. Earlier this year he created "Stossel TV" to make online videos in collaboration with like-minded groups like Reason.org.
