Kelsey Grammer, Diane Sutter to receive honors at NAB Show TV luncheon

Four-time Emmy and two-time Golden Globe-winning actor Kelsey Grammer will receive the Television Chairman's Award, April 20, in Las Vegas, at the NAB Show Television Luncheon.

Best known for his two-decade portrayal of psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane in the NBC sitcoms "Cheers" (1984-1993) and its spinoff "Frasier" (1993-2004), Grammer was nominated for four Emmys for playing his character on three different sitcoms, with the third being a guest appearance on "Wings."

The new Television Chairman Award was established to recognize individuals for a significant breakthrough in one or more specific art disciplines in television.

Diane Sutter, president and CEO of ShootingStar Broadcasting in Boston and founder of the NAB Education Foundation's Broadcasting Leadership Training (BLT) program, will receive the NAB Leadership Award at the luncheon.

The BLT program was created in 2000 to help increase the number of women and minorities in broadcast ownership. Participants learn the specific skills relevant to owning and operating radio and TV stations and group management. Sutter continues to lead the program and even teaches some of the sessions herself.
