Vicangelo Bulluck to Exec Produce 2016 Gracie Awards

Vicangelo Bulluck, who executive produced the NAACP Image Awards for 10 years, will exec produce the 41st Annual Gracie Awards Gala, the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation announced Monday.

The Gracie Awards, which recognize individual achievement and outstanding programming by, for and about women, honor national, local, public and student-level talent within the arenas of radio, TV and interactive media. The annual awards ceremony is presented by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation — a network that facilitates collaboration, education and innovation within the media fields.

In his decade-long stint as an exec producer of the Image Awards, Bulluck oversaw major music performances and tributes for Sidney Poitier, Oprah Winfrey, Bono and Barack Obama, among others.  He was the first executive director of the national NAACP’s Hollywood bureau office, which he’s responsible for opening.  Bulluck also served as the managing director of outreach and special events for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, where he managed the production of the Governors Awards, the Sci-Tech Awards, the Student Academy Awards and the first-ever Oscars Concert.

“The most important part to me is that the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation goes beyond the awards show and creates educational and networking programs to equip women in media for success,” Bulluck said in a statement.

This year’s national honorees will be recognized at the Gracie Awards Gala on May 24 at the Beverly Wilshire. Local, public and student Gracie Award winners will be honored at the Gracies Luncheon on June 21 at Cipriani in New York City.
