The Apple CEO will share a special podcast dedicated to all U.S. graduates from 2020. Tim Cook's speech will be broadcast on the National Graduation Day, during the ceremony that will be streamed in the USA, due to the Coronavirus epidemic.
iHeartMedia – a Texan company that owns 850 AM and FM radio stations in the United States – has announced that Apple's CEO will be one of the speakers for this ceremony, which is deeply felt in the USA, an indispensable rite of passage. The inaugural speech of each Graduation Day is the moment when, after four years of study, graduates can stop for a moment to reflect and find inspiration before launching the touch high in the sky and facing the real world.
Tim Cook's podcast will be one of the most anticipated speeches, along with those of other important figures from the world of technology, philanthropy, politics and American industry, including Bill and Melida Gates, Becky G, Rita Wilson, Khalid, Mary J Blige, Hillary Clinton, John Legend and Tim McGraw.
iHeartMedia, the promoter of the streaming event, has organized the transmission of podcasts starting from May 15th. They will all be available on the National Graduation Day, scheduled for May 17, 2020 in the United States.
Not the first time Tim Cook attends a Graduation Day as an speaker. Last year he gave the speech to graduates of Tulane University, to whom he spoke of his arrival in Apple, of climate change encouraging them to make the world better.
In 2015, Tim Cook delivered the opening speech at Bocconi University in Milan and the farewell speech for graduates of George Washington University. In 2016, Apple CEO Tim Cook delivered a speech to undergraduates from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In 2018 he gave the speech at the Duke University graduation ceremony.
