LMC-TV, the public access television station serving Larchmont, Mamaroneck and Rye Neck, is honoring NYS Assemblyman George Latimer at its Twentieth Annual Award Night, Monday, May 17 at 7 pm at the Emelin Theater in Mamaroneck. The evening will be hosted by Mamaroneck Village resident Vincent Graziano, author of the recent novel Die Laughing and owner of Coxe & Graziano Funeral Home in Mamaroneck.
Assemblyman Latimer will receive the Mary Anne Sullivan Award For Overall Achievement in Community Television. An avid viewer and follower of LMC-TV, Assemblyman Latimer has appeared, hosted or otherwise participated in over 167 shows on LMC-TV since 1999. These include shows by the Mamaroneck Historical Society, Poetry Moments, A Town and Village Two, Community Connections, LMC News and, of course, Assembly Update.
“I’m honored to be there with LMC-TV who plays such a vital role in the Larchmont – Mamaroneck community,” said Assemblyman Latimer.
The Mary Anne Sullivan Award is named for an LMC-TV founding member whose outstanding contributions to community television helped make the station possible. Among the previous recipients of the award are: The League of Women Voters (2008), NYS Senator Suzi Oppenheimer (2007), and The Hispanic Resource Center (2006).
The Award Night, LMC-TV’s local version of the Academy Awards, will also feature awards for Volunteer of the Year, Best Single Show, Best Series, Best Student Show and others.
The emcee of the festivities, Mr. Graziano, reports that his debut novel, Die Laughing, has nearly sold out on Amazon.com. The comic novel’s protagonist, Frankie Grace, is a third generation undertaker who wants to be a stand-up comedian. When asked if the novel is autobiographical, Mr. Graziano admitted, “I was foolish enough to think I could be a stand up comic.” After he appearing on LMC-TV’s Know Your Neighbor, produced by Sunny Goldberg, the station decided to give Mr. Graziano a chance to host its award night.
“LMC-TV is all about community and people’s dreams,” said Erik Lewis, LMC-TV’s executive director. “George Latimer has been a great supporter of our community and its television station from day one and it’s great to recognize him for that.”
