is presented each year at a special reception during the annual NATPE Market & Conference. Held in association with Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News, the Legacy Award honorees are selected by NATPE’s Executive Committee with input from the editorial staffs of the two trade publications.

Named in honor of Brandon Tartikoff, arguably one of the medium’s greatest programmers whose imprint on the television industry will be viewed forever, the Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Award was created to recognize a select group of television professionals who exhibit extraordinary passion, leadership, independence and vision in the process of creating television programming and in evoking the spirit of Tartikoff’s generosity.
