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 Awards were created to recognize a select group of television professionals who exhibit extraordinary passion, leadership, independence and vision in the process of creating content and in evoking the spirit of Tartikoff’s generosity. The recipients of NATPE’s 16th Annual Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards are comedian and media mogul Byron Allen, producer and writer Mara Brock Akil, former Chairman of NBC Entertainment Robert Greenblatt, award winners and industry icons Rita Moreno, Betty White and Henry Winkler. They will receive the prestigious award at a special reception on Wednesday, January 23, 2019, at the Eden Roc in Miami Beach. The Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Award is presented each year during the annual NATPE Miami Marketplace & Conference, which will take place from January 22 to 24, 2019, at the Fontainebleau Resort in Miami Beach, Florida.
