Hey, Where Are All of Sam Rubin’s Admirers?

Just got this notice from the Los Angeles Press Club, whose 3rd Annual
National Entertainment Journalism Awards are being held tonight (as in April 22): “Tickets still available.”

What, you mean the journalistic admirers of KTLA’s Sam Rubin, who will be honored and roasted at the event, haven’t snapped up all the tickets? I’m shocked!

According to the Press Club, Rubin will be feted “for his smart, often tough coverage of stars and movie glitz and glamour. Rubin is only the second journalist to receive this honor. Last year, Wall Street Journal and KCRW film critic Joe Morgenstern accepted the award.”

As a huge fan of Morgenstern’s work, my guess is that with this announcement, his trophy is quietly being moved from a place of prominence to the garage even as we speak.

Apparently, they’re giving away tickets to members, and non-members can attend for $20. There’s more information at the Press Club’s website.

And if you see Rubin, be kind. Although I love to tease the guy, as a former Tribune employee, I can’t help but sympathize with what his pension plan must look like these days.
