Llewellyn King, creator, executive producer and host of “White House Chronicle” on PBS, commercial, public, education and government access cable television, Voice of America Television and Sirius XM Radio, has given more than 2,000 speeches.
That is remarkable. But then so is Mr. King, who began his career in journalism as a 16-year-old correspondent for Time magazine in Africa.
Over the course of his career, Mr. King has accumulated the stuff that great stories and speeches are made of. Each week, he enthralls “White House Chronicle” viewers and listeners with “But first, a few thoughts of my own” commentaries that precede the program and his analysis of the news. Likewise, after hearing his keynote or after-dinner speeches, ballrooms of bankers, lawyers, government and industry executives, professors and students jump to their feet in a standing ovation.
Of course Mr. King’s anecdotes, drawn from his work for top news organizations on three continents, are marvelous. But it is his vast knowledge of energy, foreign and domestic policy, the media, the White House and Congress and so many other things–especially in these uncertain times–that has made him a sought-after public speaker for more than 30 years.
