106- Late-Night Talk Shows Canceled Tapings Amid Coronavirus Pandemic
The coronavirus outbreak is roiling the film and entertainment industries affecting Events, TV Shows, Movies, Sports, Theaters, Themparks, and more.
••The Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, which was first identified in China in December, has had sweeping effects in the public health, business, and travel sectors, among others. And while the repercussions for the entertainment industry may seem to pale in comparison to the clear threat the virus poses to human life, the ripple effects do have implications for the people around the world who make a living producing and distributing movies, music, and more.
•••• The immense and lucrative Chinese film industry was hit almost immediately as movie theaters across the country were closed and major releases were delayed. Hollywood soon began to feel the effects too, and as time passes, the impact of the coronavirus on the global film and entertainment industries will certainly grow.
•••• Consequences of the outbreak on these industries could range from lowered attendance at film festivals and disruptions in film distribution to delayed or canceled movie releases and concert dates to curtailed on-location film shoots. Financial ramifications will likely be felt by studios, filmmakers, theater owners, and more for months or even years.
•••• Things are moving quickly as Americans respond to the burgeoning coronavirus crisis. With public health officials warning that the best way to contain the spread of the new virus is to disband large public gatherings, many pop culture events are being delayed or canceled -- from movie premieres sports championships to music festivals.
•••• Beyond late-night, Hollywood has acutely felt the impact of the pandemic this week as a slew of major events scheduled for the comings months have either been postponed canceled outright in accordance with public health recommendations against large gatherings where the virus could easily be spread. Studios and agencies across town have also widely implemented work-from-home policies to protect their employees, and a number of film and TV productions have been postponed or delayed

•••• National Association of Broadcasters says it is "reviewing options" in face of coronavirus, but will not hold the event in April.
•••• NAB has cancelled the April 2020 convention for health reasons, according to a letter that was sent out by the National Association of Broadcasters.
••••The NAB Show, set to take place April 19-22, 2020, has been cancelled due to concerns surrounding the Coronavirus. 
••••"This was not an easy decision," the letter states. "Fortunately, we did not have to make this decision alone, and are grateful to our NAB Show community for engaging with us as we grappled with the rapidly-evolving situation."
••••The NAB Show has expressed its distress over cancelling the event, but wants the NAB Show community to know that they take any health concerns seriously. 
••••"We had a good idea this would take place and have already begun working on a virtual LPTV Day to be held about the same time," According to Lee Miller, Executive Director of the Advanced Television Broadcasting Alliance (ATBA). "Participants will be able to join us, virtually, to learn about some of the upcoming happenings in the LPTV industry."

Paris, March 4, 2020 &endash; Reed MIDEM today announces that MIPTV 2020, scheduled to take place March 30-April 2 in Cannes, has been cancelled due to concerns related to the coronavirus (Covid-19).
•••• MIPDoc and MIPFormats, programmed for March 28-29, have also been cancelled.
•••• CANNESERIES Season 3 of the Cannes International Series Festival, originally scheduled to run parallel to MIPTV, will now take place October 9-14, alongside MIPCOM.
•••• The next edition of MIPTV will take place April 12-15, 2021 in Cannes with MIPDoc and MIPFormats scheduled for April 10-11, 2021. Season 4 of CANNESERIES will be held in April 2021 during MIPTV.
••••  "In the current context, many of our clients have expressed concerns about travelling at this time. Rescheduling MIPTV in the coming months is not feasible so the most appropriate course of action is to cancel MIPTV for 2020," said Paul Zilk, Reed MIDEM Chief Executive.
•••• "The well-being of our clients, partners and staff is our priority. We are grateful to clients for their support and constructive input during this challenging period. We look forward to welcoming everyone to MIPCOM in October 12-15 and we are delighted that CANNESERIES will be at our side again at the event this year," added Paul Zilk.

101- L.A. Marathon taking precautions against coronavirus as 27,000 entrants expected - By Gary Sunkin
•••• On Sunday March 8th, the 35th annual Los Angeles marathon takes place. "All weekend activities are scheduled to take place as planned," a recent statement from the Los Angeles Marathon read. "Safety is always our first priority and our operations team has been in consistent dialogue with local authorities and monitoring developments related to all safety aspects of the marathon, including coronavirus."

•••• Health officials said the risk to exposure at the local marathon -- which will pass through Echo Park, Los Feliz and Silver Lake -- is "low" at this time.
The LA Marathon (formerly the City of Los Angeles Marathon) is an annual running event held each spring in Los Angeles, California. The 26.219 mile (42.195 km) footrace, inspired by the success of the 1984 Summer Olympic Games, has been contested every year since 1986.
•••• Over the course of its 33-year history, the LA Marathon has become one of the largest marathons in the country with more than 25,000 participants, thousands of volunteers and hundreds of thousands of spectators.
•••• The historic race, which has seen unprecedented growth since introducing the iconic "Stadium to Sea" course, draws runners from all over the world to take a tour of Los Angeles running past every major landmark. The "Stadium to the Sea" route was not the original route: the original route ended at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and a route around the turn of the millennium both started and ended in Downtown Los Angeles.
According to the marathon's website, more than 27,000 athletes from all 50 states and more than 78 countries will set out from Dodger Stadium in an effort to reach the finish line in Santa Monica.

Coronavirus Prevention
••County health officials and race organizers said that they have taken steps to try to prevent the spread of coronavirus during Sunday's L.A. Marathon, including deferring entrants from countries deemed to have a high risk of exposure to the disease.
••• A "very small number" of entrants from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Italy, South Korea and Iran have been deferred.
••• Entrants being screened at airports will be quarantined and won't be able to participate in the race if they show symptoms.
•••• Marathon officials said they deferred entries for people who live in countries where the U.S. Department of State has issued a "do not travel to" advisory, although they said it was a "very small number" of entrants, about 0.06% of the field. Entrants with a home address in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Italy, South Korea and Iran have been deferred.
•••• Murphy Reinschreiber, the chief operating officer for The McCourt Foundation, which runs the marathon, said the deferrals will be honored for next year's race.
•••• On race day, officials said they will have an increased number of hand- sanitizer stations at the race expo, start line, along the route and finish festival. They are also telling participants to follow public safety measures, including frequently washing their hands, using hand sanitizer and to stay home if they feel ill.

115- Homage and Honorary Golden Bear 2020 for Helen Mirren
•••• The 70th Berlin International Film Festival honored Oscar-winner Dame Helen Mirren with its Homage and awarded her the Honorary Golden Bear (German: Goldener Bär) for her lifetime achievement.
•••• The award ceremony included a screening of "The Queen" (2006, dir: Stephen Frears).
•••• With the Honorary Golden Bear, the Berlinale pays tribute to important figures in the world of film. The award is presented for an exceptional artistic career and is given to the guest of honour of the Homage.
•••• Not only is Helen Mirren one of the world's most renowned actresses, she was also one of the youngest ever to join the famed Royal Shakespeare Company. Over the decades, her range as an actress have been amply demonstrated in a wide variety of genres.
•••• Among the many accolades Mirren has received the 2007 Academy Award for Best Actress and Golden Globe for her performance in The Queen. In addition to many international film prizes, her stage work has also been honored with the leading theatre tributes &endash; the Olivier Award, Tony and Drama Desk Awards. In 2003, Helen Mirren was awarded the title of Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for her services to drama.
•••• After working mainly in theatre, including with the Royal Shakespeare Company, Mirren's first major film role was in Michael Powell's 1969 comedy Age of Consent. She subsequently made her mark in 1980's "The Long Good Friday" (dir: John Mackenzie), playing the assertive girlfriend of a top gangster. Her portrayal of Georgina in Peter Greenaway's "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover" (1989) was also legendary. Beginning in the 1990s, Helen Mirren increasingly expanded and diversified her roles in both film and television, among them Robert Altman's 2001 Gosford Park (Berlinale 2002). Her flair for comedy was once again in evidence with "Calendar Girls" (2003, dir: Nigel Cole). Between 1991 and 2006, she headed up the seven instalments of the TV series "Prime Suspect" as police superintendent Jane Tennison.
••••In "The Last Station" (2009), directed by Michael Hoffmann, she played Leo Tolstoy's wife Sofya. She was at the Berlinale in 2015, alongside co-star Ryan Reynolds, with "Woman in Gold" (dir: Simon Curtis). Since then, she has appeared onscreen in "Eye in the Sky" (2015, dir: Gavin Hood) and "The Leisure Seeker" (2017, dir: Paolo Virzì) among others.
••••Mirren gives another terrific performance in the thriller "The Good Liar" (dir: Bill Condon), co-starring with Ian McKellen, which recently opened theatrically in Germany and will also be shown in the Homage section.

The Homage films:

The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover, UK / France / Netherlands 1989, director: Peter Greenaway
The Good Liar, USA 2019, director: Bill Condon
The Last Station, Germany / UK / Russia 2009, director: Michael Hoffmann
The Long Good Friday, UK 1980, director: John Mackenzie
The Queen, UK / France / Italy 2006, director: Stephen Frears

•••• As a partner of the Berlin International Film Festival for many years, the Deutsche Kinemathek has, since 1977, mounted the Homage section in addition to the Retrospective.
••••The Retrospective is the Berlinale's film history programme. In Berlinale Classics, digitally restored film classics and rediscoveries celebrate their premieres. The Homage and the Honorary Golden Bear pay tribute to a great film personality for their lifetime's achievement.

115- "My Salinger Year," kicked off the Berlin Int'l Film Festival - 18 films are vying for the Golden Bear By Gordon Talbot
BERLIN -- The 70th annual Berlin International Film Festival known as "the Berlinale" is currently taking place from 20 February to 1 March 2020. It is the first under the leadership of new Berlin Film Festival heads, business administration director Mariette Rissenbeek and artistic director Carlo Chatrian who took over from Dieter Kosslick last year.
•••The Berlinale is a unique place of artistic exploration and entertainment. It is one of the largest public film festivals in the world, attracting tens of thousands of visitors from around the globe each year. For the film industry and the media, the eleven days in February are also one of the most important events in the annual calendar and an indispensable trading forum
•••• The Festival got off to a somber start after news of a racially motivated mass shooting Wednesday night in the Frankfurt neighboring German city of Hanau rocked the country.
••••"I wanted to say something about the 70th anniversary of the Berlinale, but events in Hanau hit us all hard," said Berlinale executive director Mariette Rissenbeek.
••••Artistic director Carlo Chatrian added: "We stand here as a community. When we sit in the cinema, there is no distinction between class or religion. Cinema brings us together."
•••The opening night kicked off with the screening of Philippe Falardeau's "My Salinger Year," starring Sigourney Weaver and Margaret Qualley, who attended the premiere.
••••Philippe Falardeau also paid respects to the Hanau shootings, which claimed 11 lives, telling the audience, "I want to convey my unflinching solidarity with the German people in these troubled times," adding his hope that the film might "give you a little light."
••••Hosting the show, actor Samuel Finzi offered an often politically pointed speech that focused largely on the plight of immigrants and on his own life as a Bulgarian native in Berlin.
••••"We shouldn't isolate ourselves and build walls," Finzi said.
"Perhaps there is someone trying to come here that will be a great German hope. Cinema is about shared experiences."
••••Finzi replaced long-time host Anke Engelke, a Canadian-German comedian.
••••Some pointed out the change in tone between last year and this year's ceremony. Dieter Kosslick was known for his larger-than-life personality, and his antics seemed to be missed on stage, in contrast to the more serious, nature of the festival's new co-directors.
••••Later in the evening, German culture minister Monika Grütters also took the stage and delivered a rousing anti-terror message that brought the crowd to its feet  -- one of the ceremony's few highlights. 
••• Also in attendance was Johnny Depp who arrived at the Berlin Film Festival Friday to support the film "Minamata," in which he plays celebrated war photographer W. Eugene Smith. In the film, based on real events, Smith is pitted against a powerful corporation responsible for poisoning with mercury the people of Minamata in Japan in 1971.
•••• At the film's press conference, Depp said he had a "strange fascination" with Smith and his photography, which was enhanced when he'd "read a bit about his life and what he'd gone through, what he'd experienced, what he'd sacrificed to capture those moments, to capture those photos."
••••Over the next 10 days, the Berlinale will screen 18 films that are vying for the Golden Bear, among them Kelly Reichardt's "First Cow," Mohammad Rasoulof's "There Is No Evil," Natalia Meta's "The Intruder," and Burhan Qurbani's "Berlin Alexanderplatz."

•••• Paris -- MIPTV 2020 strengthens its focus on buyers with the launch of WHAT'S TRENDING, a bespoke market intelligence strand aimed at arming international executives with the strategies, insights and exclusive data to "future-proof" their business in the face of steep competition for international IP and programming rights.
•••• Ampere Analysis, Broadcast Intelligence, FTI Consulting, Glance, Greenlight Insights, K7 Media, MIDiA Research, The WIT and Wunderman Thompson are among nine market-leading data and analytics experts joining forces to co-create the programme with the MIPTV content team. WHAT'S TRENDING will feature a daily strand of exclusive presentations centred on proprietary insights and analysis assembled in Cannes for the first time in one location.
•••• Two months out from MIPTV, Reed MIDEM is reporting an upward trend in buyer registrations confirming MIP's expanded focus on "future-proofing" the business of acquiring content rights.
•••• WHAT'S TRENDING will also feature creative keynote speaker Alexandre Amancio, CEO of Reflector Entertainment and one of the visionaries behind Assassin's Creed , who will demonstrate how pushing the boundaries of creativity and experience are key to success in a rapidly evolving global content ecosystem.
•••• Market intelligence is a key pillar of the reimagined MIPTV experience, billed as The Global Content Market for the Future. WHAT'S TRENDING responds directly to Reed MIDEM's global survey of buyers who highlighted the need for MIP to differentiate its spring programme with a focus on "future proofing" their business.
•••• WHAT'S TRENDING will sit at the heart of MIPTV's re-imagined programme, featuring a streamlined schedule of conferences debuting twice daily on the main stage Debussy Theatre in the Palais des Festivals in Cannes. The programme is open to all delegates.

• 106- Britain officially leaves the EU
•••• October 31, 2020 -- Britain has officially left the European Union after 47 years of membership, marking the end of an anguished chapter in the country's history.
•••• The departure comes 3 years after the country narrowly voted to walk away from the 28-nation bloc, which set rules for trade, farming, environmental protection and much more.

114- SAG-AFTRA mourns the passing of Kirk Douglas
•••• KirkDouglasDied300w.jpg
LOS ANGELES (Feb. 5, 2020) -- SAG-AFTRA mourns the loss of SAG Life Achievement honoree Kirk Douglas, who passed away today at the age of 103. 
•••• Douglas' career spanned more than six decades and more than 80 films, including Spartacus, Lust for Life, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The Man From Snowy River and The Final Countdown. A union member since 1942, Douglas was honored with the 35th SAG Life Achievement Award in 1998.
•••• "One of the last remaining legends of Hollywood's golden age, Kirk Douglas was an extraordinary actor. He was also a powerful voice who helped end the blacklist in our industry." said SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris. "With his extensive body of work, he made an indelible mark on cinema. But, as a true humanitarian, his lifelong dedication to quietly supporting worthy causes may have made an even greater impact. Kirk will be deeply missed and we send our condolences to his family, friends and fans."
••••Douglas was a generous philanthropist, donating millions of dollars to schools, hospitals and facilities that help the homeless. He also remembered his fellow performers. Douglas and his wife Anne gave more than $40 million to the Motion Picture & Television Fund over their lifetimes and were responsible for the creation of a care facility for Alzheimer's patients. In 2015, in honor of Douglas' 99th birthday, the MPTF announced that it would build a new facility to be named in the actor's honor.

115- Grammy Awards focuses on new stars
•••• January, the month of awards in Hollywood, is ending with the 62nd Grammy Awards taking place on Sunday, January 26, at the Staples Center, Los Angeles. The live awards will air at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS.
•••• The 2020 Grammy Awards is focusing largely on up-and-coming stars but that may become overshadowed by controversy surrounding allegations made by Deborah Dugan, the former head of the Grammys, in her lawsuit against the National Academy of Recording Arts.
•••• This was set to be the first edition of the Grammy Awards that the new Recording Academy President Deborah Dugan would have presided over; however, she was relieved of her duties as President and CEO and placed on administrative leave from the organization on January 16, 2020. Recording Academy Chairman Harvey Mason Jr. took over as interim President and Chief Executive Officer. He is currently slated to preside over the ceremony instead of Dugan
•••• After her critically lauded run as emcee of last year's GRAMMYs, 15-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys is returning to host the main telecast. She is only the fifth woman to host the Grammys and the first woman of color to host it twice. Before Keys, Queen Latifah hosted in 2005, while Rosie O'Donnell took on the duties in 1999 and 2000. Ellen DeGeneres hosted in 1996 and 1997. During last year's Grammy Awards, Keys stole the show as host. The theater audience and viewers at home raved over the musician's melodic performance, during which she impressively played two pianos at once. Whoopie Goldberg was the first woman ever to host the event, in 1992.
•••• Aerosmith was honored as the MusiCares Person of the Year two nights prior to the telecast.

Annual Critics' Choice Awards, January 12
The night's top prize for best picture went to "Once Upon A Time ... In Hollywood."
Hollywood gathered Sunday night at the Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport, to celebrate the best in television and film at the 25th annual Critics' Choice Awards, hosted by Taye Diggs.
••• Eddie Murphy received a lifetime achievement award, while Kristen Bell, who was honored with the #SeeHer Award, moved the audience with an inspiring speech.
•••• "My immediate reaction is always to answer with words like 'strong' and 'brave' and 'powerful,' but if I'm being honest, to me, being a woman is not about being brave or being strong or being powerful. It's not about being anything specific," Bell said. "It's just about giving yourself permission to be the things that you already are, which seems very easy, but it is not. Because women have been conditioned to fit into boxes; usually tiny, pretty, sparkly boxes with bows on the them."

2020 Rose Bowl Game will kick off January 1, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.••••
•••• Since 1890, the Tournament of Roses has produced America's New Year Celebration, bringing the traditions of the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl Game to Pasadena and the world for 130 years.
•••• The 106th Rose Bowl Game between Washington Huskies vs Ohio State Buckeyes and presented by Northwestern Mutual will take place on January 1, 2020, at the Rose Bowl Stadium and will feature top teams from the Pac-12 and Big Ten known as "The Granddaddy" of Them All. The Rose Bowl Game is the oldest bowl game and kicked off a myriad college football legacies in 1902.
•••• The first Tournament of Roses football game, which was the first post-season football game in the nation, was staged at Tournament Park on January 1, 1902. The game matched the West Coast's Stanford against Midwestern Michigan. (The teams would later become members of today's Pac-12 and Big Ten conferences, respectively.) Michigan routed Stanford, 49-0, prompting the football contest to be replaced with Roman-style chariot races inspired by the literary classic Ben-Hur. Football was permanently reinstated as part of the Tournament's traditions in 1916.
•••• The exclusive agreement among the Tournament of Roses Association, the Big Ten Conference and the Pac-12 Conference was born in 1946, and the first game played under the agreement took place on January 1, 1947. The pact is the oldest intercollegiate postseason bowl agreement between two major conferences in the United States.
•••• This collegiate classic has been the occasion of many firsts. The Rose Bowl Game was the first local radio broadcast of an East-West bowl game in 1926, the first transcontinental radio broadcast of a sporting event in 1927, the first local telecast of a college football game in 1948, the first national telecast of a college football game in 1952, the first coast-to-coast color telecast of a collegiate football game in 1962, and the first College Football Playoff Semifinal in 2015.

•••• Since 1890, the Tournament of Roses has produced America's New Year Celebration, bringing the traditions of the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl Game to Pasadena and the world for nearly a 131 years.
•••• The Oregon Ducks, champions of the Big Ten Conference, and Wisconsin, champions of the Pac-12 Conference, will play in the 106th Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual at 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET, on January 1, 2020, at the Rose Bowl Stadium.
GARY Rose Bowl150w.jpg•••• ••No. 9 Washington is headed back to the Rose Bowl for the second time since a 34-24 victory over Purdue on Jan. 1, 2001.
•••••••The Wisconsin-Oregon play will mark the second time in five years that the Rose Bowl has featured the Pac-12 and Big Ten champions. The last time that happened was after the 2013 season, when Michigan State defeated Stanford, 24-20.
Back to Pasadena
•••• Pre-game festivities on January 1, will begin at 1 p.m. PT (4 p.m. ET). The game will be televised nationally on ESPN.

2019 celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the World Wide Web
•••• In 1989 the world's largest physics laboratory, CERN was a hive of ideas and information stored on multiple incompatible computers. Tim Berners-Lee envisioned a unifying structure for linking information across different computers and wrote an proposal in 1989 called "Information Management: A Proposal." By 1991 this vision of universal connectivity had become the Word Wide Web.

"Suppose all information stored on computers everywhere were linked . Suppose I could program my computer to create a space in which everything could be linked to everything."
-Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web

•••• Tim Berners-Lee wrote the first web browser in 1990 while employed at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland. The browser was released to the general public in August 1991. The World Wide Web has been central to the development of the Information Age and is the primary tool billions of people use to interact on the Internet.

•••••"There are very few innovations that have truly changed everything." "The Web is the most impactful innovation of our time."

KenBurns108w.jpg••••••••• COUNTRY MUSIC, a new 8-part, 16-hour documentary film series directed by Ken Burns, written by Dayton Duncan and produced by Duncan, Julie Dunfey and Burns, will premiere September 15, 2019 on PBS stations nationwide.

•••• The documentary will feature never-before-seen footage and photographs, plus interviews with more than 100 country music artists. Viewers will hear the remarkable stories of the people and places behind a true American art form as the documentary, chronicles country music's early days, from Southern Appalachia's songs of struggle, heartbreak and faith to the rollicking Western swing of Texas, California's honky-tonks and Nashville's "Grand Ole Opry." Much like the music itself, the film tells unforgettable stories of hardships and joys shared by everyday people. 

Photo r: /KBurnsJC-TC200w.jpgJosie Cory and Troy Cory-Stubblefield covered a sneak preview event of the film "COUNTRY MUSIC' at the Autry Mueum, July 27, 2019. for TVI (Television Int'l Magazine). After attending a roundtable interview with Ken Burns and producers, Troy Cory asked Burns during the reception if he is working already on any new projects and "yes" he replied, "future projects include Ernest Hemingway, Muhammad Ali, the Holocaust and the United States, Benjamin Franklin, Lyndon B. Johnson, the American Buffalo, Leonardo da Vinci, the American Revolution, the history of crime and punishment in America, the history of Reconstruction, and Winston Churchill, among others."

107- Country Artist Jerry Wallace remembered by his friends, and fans, but not by the Country Music Association By Josie Cory
2010/Imagespeople/JerryWallaceThanksObit108w.jpgThe CMA failed to pay tribute the year Jerry Wallace passed away by mentioning his name during the 2008 Country Music Award ceremonies. Jerry's musical gift was enjoyed by millions of fans and this writer felt the unfairness to this artist by the omission of his mention during the CMA's "In Memoriam." What a minor effort it would have been for the Country Music Association to acknowledge this gifted singer with a well deserved albeit small credit.
••• What brought Jerry Wallace to mind is Ken Burns' recent broadcast of his 8 episode "Country Music" film, that dives deep into the roots and evolvement of country music with never-before-seen footage and photographs. Much like the music itself, the film tells unforgettable stories of hardships and joys shared by everyday people. Remarkable stories of the people and places behind a true American art form as the documentary, chronicles country music's early days, from Southern Appalachia's songs of struggle, heartbreak and faith to the rollicking Western swing of Texas, California's honky-tonks and Nashville's "Grand Ole Opry."
••• A documentary eight years in the making and and looked forward to by many with anticipation, the film did not fail to impress. Millions joined the viewing sharing the sentiment of Meredith Vieira when she stated "I watch all things Burns."

First Country Music album by 25 great country music artists
Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum
• • The original Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum opened on Music Row (Music Square East and Division Street) on April 1, 1967. The LP record album was produced and released to help honor those artists pictured on front.
• • On behalf of the Country Music Association, it was Martin Gilbert and Troy Cory with the help of Jerry Wallace who selected both the Nashville recordings on the album, which included, non-Nashvillians: Lefty Frizzell, Tex Ritter, and Merle Travis.
• • As Jerry put it, "to add variety to the 25 all-Nashville related group of singers." Jerry along with Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys songs were not included on the album, which was one of the reasons why each track was edited to add a couple of non-Nashville country artists.
• •
Jerry's big hits in the 60s were,"Primrose Lane" was a top five million-seller, "There She Goes," - "Shutters And Boards" - "In The Misty Moonlight" - "Life's Gone And Slipped Away" all Top 20 singles.
• • Jerry was a big help to me at the time when I was promoting my Nashville single, "I Put your Picture Back in my Wallet," and "This One's On the House," said Troy Cory. We hit all the radio stations in town while he tried to show me how to pluck a record. An introduction by Jerry meant a guaranteed sure "play with his DJ buddies."
"Country Doctor Prescribes City Music"
• • Many musical evenings were spent at our Hollywood Hills home, when Jerry brought his musician friends like, Freddie Hart, Ray Peterson, the 'Queen Mother of Nashville,' Mae Axton, Stuart Hamlin, Chill Wills, and Hoyt Axton. It was during that time Jerry became the co-producer of the Country Hall of Fame LP record album, and helped in the choosing of the group of country stars selected as "Hall of Fame" honoraries.
vra681200LPDocCory108w.jpg• • Troy's Specialty Records and Mercury Records chart hits in the 60s, included: "Little Pink Toe," "Just One More Chance," and "Suzy McGregor." Jerry's music producer, Joe Johnson, the owner of Challenge Records, died of the results from a fall from a 7-story Nashville building. Troy later was on the BBC label.
• • In 1961, the CMA announced the creation of the Country Music Hall of Fame. The first three inductees, Jimmie Rodgers, Fred Rose and Hank Williams, were announced at a CMA banquet in November of said year. Bronze plaques, with the facial likeness and a thumbnail biography of each new member were cast in bas relief. They were unveiled at the Grand Ole Opry by Ernest Tubb. These plaques, and those for subsequent Hall of Fame inductees, were displayed in the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville until 1967.

101- Cory's Road to China;

TroyCoryChinaLogo108w.jpg ••• Troy Cory was among the first international entertainers and the first American entertainer to perform in the People's Republic of China, beginning in 1988. In itself a notable culture-historical feat, in view of China's closed door policies of the late 70s and well into the 80s. The PRC's administrative climate in comparison is much less restrictive now and China's open door policy enables many entertainers to introduce themselves to the populace Chinese audiences.

Television Internatinal Magazine Founder, Sam Donaldson.
Samuel Andrew Donaldson became interested in broadcasting at an early age and, after graduating from New Mexico Military institute, majored in telecommunications at Texas Western. He immediately began working at local stations as a disc jockey, announcer and interviewer. While still in El Paso, he had his first taste of television, working as an announcer in the region's first television station.
•••• While attending graduate school at the University of Southern California, Donaldson met publisher Al Preiss, and they both formed TELEvisionFILM Magazine. Both seeing where the international television market was heading, the name was changed to Television International Magazine.
•••• In his book "Hold On Mr. President" Donaldson writes .... After getting my B.A., I went to the University of Southern California for a year of postgraduate work. This time I worked hard but didn't stick to it. Instead, I started a magazine in Hollywood all with five thousand dollars and a friend named al Preiss. We went first-class, letter press printing instead of offset, four-color ads instead of black and white. It soon became evident that we needed fifty thousand dollars, not five." Eventually Donaldson sold out to Al Preiss who continued publishing the magazine until his death in 1986. In 1987 The Cory's purchased the Magazine fro,m Al's widow Sylvia Preiss.

Television International Magazine Co-Founder, Al Preiss.
Born in Waseca, Minnesota, Preiss began his career in the newsroom at WCCO-TV in Minneapolis as a sportscaster. He later moved to Los Angeles, where he began teaching television courses at the University of Southern California.
••• It was there, in 1955 when Al Preiss had a vision -- a vision that materialized in 1956, when he and his colleague Sam Donaldson launched TELEvisionFilm Magazine.
••• Both Al and Sam had an honest conviction that, "the television film industry had reached a stage where it needed a national publication that would analyze and put into focus -- the news, issues and problems which particularly concern the production and distribution of film for television.
••• When Al Preiss died in August 1986, the television industry lost an untiring advocate and a giant of a good friend. The tall, wonderfully amiable publisher truly seemed to do it all -- attending nearly every press conference, speech, convention and reception, and was never seen without his trademark clear plastic briefcase. You turned around at these functions and there was Preiss, taking notes, talking animatedly, telling stories, doing his job. One that he not only loved, but felt was necessary and important. He did it all with the help of his charming wife of 25 years, Sylvia, who was editor of the magazine during the years of 1985 and 1986.
••• The controlling interest of the magazine, with all of its archival history was purchased in 1987 by the Cory's.
