NBC Alums to Honor Carson at Reunion Event

While the current generation of NBC employees try to dig themselves out of the cellar, the network’s illustrious alumni will be holding their 15th annual reunion dinner on Oct. 23 at Lakeside Golf Club in Toluca Lake.

The twist at this year’s event — which will be emceed by “Days of Our Lives” stars Joseph Mascolo and Lauren Koslow — will be a tribute to the late Johnny Carson, who would have celebrated his 85th birthday that day.

Tom Dreesen — a frequent guest on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” — will be among those performing as part of the event, along with Steve Landesberg, Kelly Monteith and Michael Preminger.

Having grown up as a reporter covering the folks represented in the Peacock network’s alumni ranks, it ought to be a pretty entertaining group, and past events have been described as informal — a sort of TV version of a high school reunion, only with dirtier stories.

Given NBC’s success in the net’s heyday, present honchos might be advised to see if they can wrangle a ticket and get a look at what the old gang’s swagger looks like.
