Publicists tap Grushow as Showman

Previous winners include Moonves, Albrecht, Harbert

Union publicists will give their Television Showmanship Award to Sandy Grushow, who recently resigned as chairman of Fox Television Entertainment Group to launch his own production shingle.

Kudos will be presented at the Intl. Cinematographers Guild’s 41st annual Publicists Awards luncheon Feb. 27 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Previous winners include Leslie Moonves, Chris Albrecht, Ted Harbert, Chris Carter, Fred Silverman, Grant Tinker, Norman Lear, David Kelley, Steven Bochco, the triumvirate of Marcy Carsey, Tom Werner and Caryn Mandabach, Aaron Spelling, Bob Hope, Garry Marshall and Jerry Bruckheimer, last year’s recipient.

Publicists are repped through the ICG as a result of its merger with Publicists Guild Local 818 two years ago.

“Sandy is being recognized for his extraordinary record during 2003,” said Henri Bollinger, org’s awards committee chairman. “He added seven new shows to the 14 series the company already had on the air for a total of 21 shows during the current season.”

That roster includes returning series “24,” “Angel,” “The Bernie Mac Show,” “Boston Public,” “Judging Amy,” “King of the Hill,” “Oliver Beene,” “The Practice,” “Reba,” “The Simpsons,” “Still Standing” and “Yes, Dear” and new series “Arrested Development,” “Married to the Kellys,” “Cracking Up,” “Miss Match,” “Tru Calling” and “The Wonderfalls.”

Org noted that under Grushow’s tenure, the network has experienced some of its greatest success with the introduction of “American Idol,” “24,” “Bernie Mac” and “Joe Millionaire.”
