Quinn, Howar, Fleming to join Sajak on Variety spec

Former MTV host Martha Quinn, author/commentator Barbara Howar and Variety staff writer Charles Fleming will join host Pat Sajak on the year-end TV special “Variety Reviews ’92,” syndicated by Turner Program Services for broadcast in January.

The program, produced in association with Mudia Corp., will recap some of the biggest entertainment stories–and recount some of the most controversial and embarrassing moments–of 1992.

It marks Variety’s first-ever television venture and is the first in a planned series of specials.

“This year, more attention was given to Hollywood news than ever before,” TPS president W. Russell Barry said. “From the Ice-T controversy to Johnny Carson’s last ‘Tonight Show’ to Dan Quayle and ‘Murphy Brown,’ ’92 was a pivotal year for entertainment.”

Fleming will discuss 1992’s major movie and TV deals and review the year’s best and worst releases; Quinn and reporter Lynn Blades will spotlight key events in the music industry; Howar will look at the major figures and events of the past 12 months, and Sam Rubin will remind viewers of an unusual year in TV.

Mudia president Lionel Schaen and George Merlis will be executive producers of “Variety Reviews ’92.” Gary Herman is producer, Michele Tafoya is production manager and Jerry Kupcinet is director of the special, which will be written by Garry Bormet.

“Variety Reviews ’92” already has been cleared in 29 of the top 30 markets.
