Big Names Turn Out for Hearst TV's Barrett at Golden Mikes
Jon Miller, Dr. Oz, Steve Harvey salute Hearst TV chief
By Michael Malone -- Broadcasting & Cable, 2/20/2013 10:58:58 AMThe Broadcasters Foundation of America gives out the Golden Mike award each year; the Foundation comes to the aid of broadcasters who can no longer work because of medical or other circumstances. The Golden Mike "honors exemplary service to the industry," according to its press materials.
Veteran baseball broadcaster Jon Miller, who announced Sunday Night Baseball games on ESPN for 21 years, will host the event, which will include presentations by daytime TV hosts Steve Harvey and Dr. Mehmet Oz. Darlene Love, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, will perform.
Alan Frank, former president and CEO of Post-Newsweek Stations and winner of the 2011 Golden Mike, and Jordan Wertlieb, president of Hearst Television, will speak on behalf of Barrett. Barrett's son, Casey, an Emmy and Peabody Award winner for writing and producing NBC's Olympics coverage, will also pay tribute to his father.
Barrett has led Hearst Television, which comprises 29 television and two radio stations, since 2001. He joined Hearst in 1984 and was inducted into the B&C Hall of Fame in 2008.
