honored for their work advancing broadcast journalism.
The evening will begin with a reception at 6:30 p.m.
followed by dinner at 7:00 p.m.
The Master of Ceremonies will be Pat McMahon of KTAR radio. If anyone ever told Pat McMahon, "You simply can’t do it all" he wasn’t listening! Pat McMahon’s career at KTAR radio spans over 30 years as award winning talk-show host of such memorable shows as, "The Pat McMahon Show", "The McMahon Group" and "The God Show." As a child he traveled the world with his show business family, which proved excellent training for his multi-faceted career as an actor with legends like Orson Welles, John Huston and Dick Van Dyke, a producer, recording artist, writer, broadcaster and one-third of the unforgettable comedy team that was the 35 year TV legend, "The Wallace and Ladmo Show."
The Pasadena Convention Center is located in the heart of downtown Pasadena, just 9 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles, 16 miles from Bob Hope/Burbank Airport and 29 miles from Los Angeles International Airport.
