Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and international television and film star Chuck Norris are the latest to join the impressive list of 50+ speakers who will participate at the NRB 2015 International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, TN.
In addition, Norris will be receiving the NRB Chairman’s Award.
“Governor Huckabee is a watchman on the wall,” remarked Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, President & CEO of NRB. “He consistently raises the alarm when our First Amendment freedoms are attacked, and we are grateful for his strong voice for freedom. We are honored that he will be with us again for NRB15.”
Before becoming the host of the number one rated weekend show Huckabee on the Fox News Channel, Huckabee was the 44th Governor of Arkansas from 1996 until 2007, making him one of the longest serving governors in his state’s history. Today, in addition to his weekend show, Huckabee is heard three times daily across the nation on The Huckabee Report, syndicated on nearly 600 stations. He is also a New York Times bestselling author of 11 books, and his 12th is set for release in January 2015.
Chuck Norris first made his mark as a renowned teacher of martial arts and was a six-time undefeated World Professional Middle Weight Karate Champion. He is the first man from the Western Hemisphere in the 4,500+ year tradition of Tae Kwon Do to be awarded an eight degree Black Belt Grand Master ranking. He has also starred in 24 motion pictures. Furthermore, his television series, Walker, Texas Ranger, ran for 8 1/2 years and was the most successful Saturday night series on CBS since Gunsmoke.
“Chuck Norris is a legend in his own time,” noted Dr. Johnson. "We are proud to honor him and his legacy at NRB15.”
Adding to that, NRB Chairman of the Board Bill Blount said: "On behalf of the NRB, it's thrilling to present Chuck Norris with the Chairman's Award. Chuck Norris has had an extraordinary career in martial arts and entertainment. Through all his productions, he's maintained a high level of integrity, ethics, and family-friendly programming. Because of his superior standards, in a world that does not usually reward those ideals, we want to honor and recognize his achievements."
