Hall calls for Cappleman

Carney's passing allows exec to be inducted

Charles “Capp” Cappleman has been added to the list of inductees to the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Hall of Fame.

Cappleman joins previously announced inductees Bob Barker, Art Carney, Katie Couric, Dan Rather and Brandon Tartikoff.

“According to Hall of Fame rules, if an inductee passes away, the selection committee can increase the number of living inductees,” said Sam Haskell, exec VP — worldwide head of television for the William Morris Agency and the chairman of the Acad’s Hall of Fame selection committee.

Carney passed away in early November, less than two weeks after the initial announcement of Hall of Fame inductees.

Cappleman is exec VP of West Coast operations and engineering at CBS Television City. He is best known for the planning and execution of the studio building at Television City completed in 1992. He is also credited for helping to conceive technical breakthroughs on several CBS skeins, including “The Judy Garland Show” and “The Smothers Brothers Show.”

He received the Television Academy’s Charles F. Jenkins Lifetime Achievement Award in 2002.
