PGA taps Ted Turner for conference

UN Foundation also sponsoring a workshop

Ted Turner, founder and chairman of the United Nations Foundation, will speak at the Producers Guild of America's second annual Produced By Conference on June 5 at Fox Studios.

The UN Foundation will also sponsor a conference workshop titled "Power of the Producer to Affect Social Change."

"The guild is privileged to have Ted Turner take part in the Produced By Conference this year. He is truly a media visionary and his amazing entrepreneurial spirit is an attribute that all producers strive for each and every day," PGA president Marshall Herskovitz said. "He's single handedly changed the face of the media landscape as we know it but more importantly, he's extraordinarily dedicated to helping others around the world. I'm confident that the producing community will be inspired by both his work and heart."

The Produced By Conference will run from June 4-6.
