Marilu Henner to Address NAB Show Radio Luncheon

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Marilu Henner, a five-time Golden Globe nominee, New York Times best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio personality, will speak at the NAB Show Radio Luncheon, held Tuesday, April 14 in Las Vegas and sponsored by ASCAP. The NAB Show is the annual conference and expo for professionals who create, manage and distribute entertainment across all platforms.

Henner currently hosts the nationally syndicated “Marilu Henner Show” on radio and was the previous host and executive producer of “Marilu” and “Shape Up Your Life.” She has guest-starred on every major talk show, earning her the title “Talk Show Guest of the Year” several years in a row.

Henner has starred in over 30 films, six Broadway shows and two hit classic sitcoms, including “Taxi,” where she played Elaine Nardo. Additionally, she was a competitor on Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” and “Celebrity Apprentice All-Stars” and has appeared on such shows as “Two and a Half Men,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “The Crazy Ones.” Henner was also the subject of a three-part special about Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory on “60 Minutes,” as she is one of only 12 people documented with the ability.

“Marilu Henner has achieved tremendous success in television, theater and as a writer,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Radio John David. “She is also a distinguished radio talk show host. We look forward to hearing her perspective on her enthusiasm for radio and audience relationships.”

An accomplished author, Henner has written nine books on health, parenting, memory and lifestyle improvement, the most recent one titled “Total Memory Makeover: Uncover Your Past, Take Charge of Your Future!,” which earned spots on The New York Times and Publishers Weekly Best Seller lists. She has spoken before Congress on topics such as dietary supplements, women’s cardiovascular disease and the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act of 2010.

The NAB Show Radio Luncheon will include the annual presentation of the prestigious NAB Crystal Radio Awards, which honor local radio stations for their year-round commitment to community service. Kevin Ryder and Gene “Bean” Baxter, hosts of the long-running “Kevin and Bean Morning Show” on KROQ Los Angeles, will be inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame.
