Producer/Director Michael Gargiulo
In addition, this year's Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Award for Lifetime Achievement will be presented to producer, director, Michael Gargiulo, who in his over 50-year career has had a hand in many television classics such as "Password," "I've Got A Secret," "The Tell the Truth," The Thanksgiving Day's Parade," the "Tournament of Roses," plus many variety specials for CBS, including the "New Year's Eve Celebration" for more than 30 years.
"Adding Producer/Director Michael Gargiulo as our lifetime achievement honoree to the evening's festivities with his over-half a century of Emmy-Award winning work guarantees a terrific evening as we honor the best in daytime television."
"Michael Gargiulo is a behind the camera pioneer who goes back to his days with television legends Bob Stewart and Mark Goodson," said David Michaels, Senior Vice President, Daytime.
"From his historic recording of the Nixon Khrushchev "kitchen debate" to the "$10,000 Pyramid," Michael Gargiulo has produced and directed just about everything in a career that includes game shows, variety specials and news. We're delighted to be honoring him with this well-deserved lifetime achievement award."
Michael Gargiulo
Michael Gargiulo was born and raised in Coney Island and lived above his father's restaurant, where bands and variety talent appeared regularly. Down the block, was a strip joint and a side show. It seemed only fitting that a career in showbiz was in his making!
In 1954, Gargiulo was hired by WNBC as a staff director and did most all of the local shows in New York until 1959 when NBC selected him to join the State Department project to build a television studio in Moscow and introduce color television to the Russian people during a cultural exchange. It was in this studio that Nikita Khrushchev and Richard Nixon had their famous "kitchen debate", which Mike recorded and rushed back to NBC , who shared them with CBS and ABC within hours.... the start, perhaps, of the modern-day, televised political debates.
In 1969, Mike joined Bob Stewart Productions to direct "Jackpot" on NBC, and later, the "$10,000 Pyramid."
During this career, Michael Gargiulo also had a flair for variety shows, which became the vogue in the early 1960's.
Gargiulo has also become legendary in his producing and directing of the Tournament of Roses and Thanksgiving Day Parades plus variety specials for CBS, including the New Year's Eve celebration for more than 30 years. He recently directed "An American Portrait", a series of one minute spots, honoring someone who contributed to the fabric of our society. For two years, every weekday evening, one American was honored, for one minute, coast to coast.
Gargiulo has accrued 31 nominations and 9 Emmy Awards in his storied career. He notes that none of this would be possible without the support of his wife of over half a century, Dorothy and his children; daughter Susan at Nickelodeon, and son Michael, an anchor at WNBC in New York.
