Emilio Azcárraga Jean, James L. Brooks, Jon Feltheimer and Lauren Zalaznick will receive NATPE-Content First's 11th annual Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Award during the NATPE 2014 Market & Conference in Miami on Tuesday, January 28 at a reception sponsored by Broadcasting & Cable / Multichannel News. The announcement was made today by NATPE President & CEO Rod Perth.
Named in honor of Brandon Tartikoff, one of television's greatest programmers, the Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Award was created to recognize a select group of television professionals who exhibit extraordinary passion, leadership, independence and vision in the process of creating television programming.
"We are honored to celebrate this extraordinary group of talented people who have made such remarkable contributions to the world of media," said Perth. "We've chosen each of them because they've raised the bar of achievement, and are some of the absolute best in their fields of our business. Their accomplishments are incredible, from Emilio's formidable expansion of Televisa's business, and Jim's unique ability to touch and entertain us with remarkable stories and characters, to Jon's shrewd growth strategy and vision for screens both large and small, and Lauren's record of building hugely successful cable brands in the times of this dynamic digital media landscape."
This year's honorees will be feted with new surprises at the cocktail reception/ceremony, which will take place on Tuesday, January 28 during NATPE 2014 at the Fontainebleau Resort. Event tickets are available for $175, benefiting the NATPE Educational Foundation, and can be purchased online https://www.natpe.com/page/legacyaward.
"It would have meant so much to Brandon that NATPE continued to keep alive his love for TV with this award," said Lilly Tartikoff. "Emilio, Jim, Jon and Lauren embody the creative brilliance and passion for the business that were his trademark."
