As NATPE has evolved to encompass international programming, digital distribution, social media engagement and more, one of its annual highlights remains the Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards reception, taking place this year on Jan. 20.
In that one room at Miami's fabled Fontainebleau, notable figures from across the television landscape gather, and the evening always casts a fond glow on Tartikoff’s ongoing significance in the industry. In a Snapchat world, that’s a rare feat of endurance.
In this special report, we catch up with honorees in the 13th annual class to learn how they all made their mark on the industry, with Tartikoff’s distinguished run as an inspiration: producer/activist Norman Lear, Shine Endemol CEO Sophie Turner Laing, maestro Quincy Jones, Viacom veteran Doug Herzog and multitasking host Steve Harvey.
Congratulations to them all, and we look forward to meeting up in Miami Beach.
