Fox Business Network anchor Cheryl Casone, known for her regular reports connecting potential employees to job openings across the country, will be the keynote luncheon speaker at the Council for A Better Louisiana‘s 52nd Annual Meeting and Luncheon Thursday, Dec. 11, at the L‘Auberge Hotel Conference Center in Baton Rouge. (IND Media is one of the event‘s sponsors.)

According to CABL‘s press release announcing Casone‘s appearance:

With workforce needs topping Louisiana‘s business agenda for the next several years, Casone will focus on ways that our state can meet the challenges of our expanding economy and ensure that growing businesses have access to the employees they need.

Casone has extensive experience as a business journalist and has previously done work for CNN, MSNBC and CBS News. She is a featured anchor on the Fox Business Network and a contributor to the Fox News Channel specializing in business and financial issues. She is well known for her weekly segment "Top Companies Hiring this Week," which spotlights some of the major job opportunities available to workers around the country.

"We know that for many businesses across the state workforce development is their NO. 1 issue," CABL President Barry Erwin said in the press release. "Cheryl brings a unique and very informed outside perspective that we think will be of interest to employers, government leaders and citizens across the state."

Prior to the noon luncheon a diverse panel of political observers will dissect the 2014 Congressional races and look ahead to the 2015 elections for governor and the Legislature.
