The Daytime Emmy Awards will honor "American Bandstand" and Dick Clark as part of its upcoming primetime telecast on CBS. What's of particular interest here, is that Dick Clark Productions (dcp) has produced this telecast numerous times in the past, but is not producing the broadcast this year. But get this. The producers are going all out to honor Clark.
"Since this is the first time the Daytime Emmys will be based outside New York or L.A., we're putting together a special that will tap into the energy and excitement of Las Vegas, " said David McKenzie, executive producer of the telecast. "This will be an entertainment driven awards presentation that viewers will embrace."
Cher, Barry Manilow, Garth Brooks, Marie Osmond, Ann-Margret, Frankie Avalon, the Spinners, Jay Leno and Simon Cowell are all on tap to salute Bandstand and its' legendary host and television personality.
Hosted by Regis Philbin, the 37th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will air Sunday, June 27, live from the Las Vegas Hilton.
