Centerville MA - Award winning journalist and broadcaster, Charlie Rose, was honored by Time Magazine as one of the Top 100 Most Influential People. Mr. Rose will be visiting the Hyannis area this summer as the Celebrity Guest Conductor for the 29th Annual Pops by the Sea concert presented by The Arts Foundation of Cape Cod. He will join the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra on the Hyannis Village Green.

Time Magazine's list, compiled annually, features icons, artists, leaders and other influential people who are pioneers in their fields. Former New York City mayor, Michael Bloomberg, commented on Rose's influence by stating " Charlie's long-form interviews are substantive, thoughtful and probing. It's conversation the way we experience it with good friends and family. We reflect. We open up. We talk about issues that matter....He's the most disarming man in America. And as a result, he's one of the most important and influential people in journalism."

Charlie Rose is anchor and executive editor of Charlie Rose, the nightly one-hour program that engages in one-on-one, in-depth conversations and round-table discussions, and the newly launched Charlie Rose, This Week, chronicling the best stories and interviews of the past seven days. He also co-anchors CBS This Morning and is a contributing correspondent to 60 Minutes.

Kevin Howard, President & CEO of the Arts Foundation commented, "Mr Rose's standing as a working journalist today is unparallelled. We are delighted to have him gracing our Pops by the Sea stage."
Charlie Rose appears nightly on PBS and in primetime on Bloomberg Television in the United States and around the world. Its round oak table and simple black backdrop provide an intimate atmosphere for intelligent conversation. Since 1991, Charlie Rose has aired countless hours with Nobel Laureates, and extraordinary men and women of science, politics, art, business, sports, technology, literature and entertainment. These conversations have made the broadcast a cultural and intellectual archive of our time.
