Anchor Rick Sanchez to Deliver Keynote Address at
T.R.A.F.F.I.C. New York October 27
news anchor Rick Sanchez has
been chosen to deliver the keynote address at the T.R.A.F.F.I.C.
New York conference October 27th (the
show runs Oct. 26-29 at the Brooklyn Bridge
Marriott). There is a connection between CNN and
T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Co-Founder Rick Schwartz who sold
the domain name iReport.com to the cable news
network for $750,000. In reference to that
transaction, Schwartz noted "It was a sale that could
be pointed to for many years to come by every domainer and
every time a domainer watched CNN and saw iReport.com it
would give them the fuel to keep going." Sanchez has
already decided to donate his fee for speaking to charity.

interview with Schwartz and fellow T.R.A.F.F.I.C.

prospects will affect domain owners in the year ahead.
