Pepperdine Libraries Hosts Media Consultant Don Ringe
Emmy Award-winning media consultant Don Ringe, who has worked on national political campaigns including the presidential campaigns of Ronald Reagan and Bob Dole, will examine voting registration legislation in 2012 on Thursday, Oct. 4, at 4 p.m. in the Kresge Reading Room of Payson Library, Malibu.
Ringe began his career at 18 as a copy boy at Newsday and went on to create one of the first political media firms in the country in 1970. He then became the director of special projects at KABC-TV News in Los Angeles, executive news producer at KPIX-TV in San Francisco, and shortly thereafter, news director and executive producer of programming at WNAC-TV, then the CBS affiliate in Boston.
In 1978 he founded Ringe Media, a communications company specializing in public affairs and political media campaigns, as well as educational and entertainment media. The company has been responsible for the advertising for many U.S. Senate and gubernatorial campaigns, as well as for Presidential campaigns in the US and abroad. The firm also creates media for ballot initiatives, associations, and special interest groups.
