Named in honor of the late Oscar and six-time Emmy-winning actor Art Carney, the Carney Awards were created by Elvis Duran Group CEO David Katz, his brother Jim Katz, and Brian Carney, actor/voiceover artist and Art’s son. The Carney Awards is a joint production between the Elvis Duran Group and Radcliffe Road Pictures.
David Katz said, “Elvis and I, along with the family of Art Carney, are so fortunate and proud to present the Carney Awards for the first time ever on television. The show we produced was hugely attended by our radio brethren, including Dan Mason, Jubal, Jim Loftus, John McConnell, Ronn Owens, Eric Weiss, Keith Kauffman and so many others. And for that, Elvis and I say thank you!”
This year William H. Macy, Wendie Malick, William Fichtner, Richard Kind, and Xander Berkeley were honored, while Allison Janney, Jeff Garlin, Clark Gregg, Dan Lauria, and Titus Welliver presented. ABC’s Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron was host.
