Quantcast
AFTER 40 YEARS OF GRAMMYS, EHRLICH BOWS OUT

Ken Ehrlich, who has been producing the Grammy Awards telecast since 1980, will take a bow after executive producing next year’s 62nd Grammy Awards.  Ben Winston will become the sole executive producer for the 63rd telecast in 2021.

"Ken's imprint on the Grammy Awards and the music industry are well-known and represent the kind of work and vision that legends are made of," said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. "Having worked closely with Ken for almost half of his tenure with the show, I have seen first-hand the vision, extraordinary musical knowledge, and passion he brings to every minute of the process, and the spectacular results and memorable Grammy Moments that have been delivered. It's an honor to celebrate his 40th anniversary with the Grammys.”

"It's called 'Music's Biggest Night' for a reason, and one of those reasons is Ken Ehrlich," said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music and Live Events, CBS. "Every musical artist from every genre wants to be known as a Grammy winner, but for the viewing audience, it is those once in a lifetime 'Grammy Moments' that are unforgettable—and we have Ken Ehrlich to thank for that. CBS is proud of and grateful for Ken's creative leadership and partnership over the last 40 years.

“With the Grammys’ rich history and foundation in place, we will pass the baton in 2021 to Ben Winston, one of the most creative producing voices in television today. The past is historic. The present is exciting. And the future is bright for this event on television."

Winston produces The Late Late Show with James Corden and has produced specials for Bruno Mars, Sam Smith, Harry Styles, Justin Bieber and others. He has also produced the Brits three times.

He  was recently the executive producer for the Global Citizen Nelson Mandela 100 Concert in South Africa, with Beyoncé and Jay Z as headliners.
