Phil Donahue to receive Metzenbaum Award in Cleveland

Phil Donahue will return to his home town of Cleveland on Sunday, September 14th, to receive Ohio Citizen Action's 2008 Howard M. Metzenbaum award. The event, which will take place at 7:00 p.m. at the Cleveland Institute of Art's Cinematheque theater, will include a viewing of Donahue's stirring documentary Body of War (87 minutes), question and answer session with Donahue and a coffee and dessert reception to follow.

 

Phil Donahue began his broadcast career at Cleveland's NBC affiliate and launched his audience participation television talk show in Dayton in 1967. The show, which was honored with 20 daytime EMMY awards, ran for 29 years and changed the face of daytime television. He is currently touring the nation as co-producer/director of the documentary Body of War. This film follows the story of Tomas Young, a 25 year-old paralyzed U.S. soldier, who was wounded after serving for less than a week in Iraq.

 

The event is open to the public. Individual admission is $20 for adults and $10 for students, seniors and veterans.
