Sam Champion, anchor, “Good Morning America,” AJ Hammer, host, “HLN Showbiz Tonight, and Robin Meade, host, “HLN Morning Express, hosted this evening’s festivities including a pre-show, red carpet special featuring one-on-one interviews with the night’s biggest stars.  Among the night’s many celebrity presenters were Alex Trebek of “Jeopardy!,” Kathy Griffin, “My Life on the D-List,” Wayne Brady, “Let’s Make A Deal,” Steve Harvey, “The Steve Harvey Show,” Rachael Ray, “The Rachael Ray Show,” Erika Slezak, “One Life to Live,” Corin Bernsen, “LA Law” and “The Young & the Restless,” Bethenny Frankel, “The Bethenny Frankel Show,” Dr. Drew Pinsky, “Dr. Drew,” Kris Jenner, “Kris,” Giada De Laurentis, “Giada at Home,”and Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Leah Remini, Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood, “The Talk.”

One of the many highlights of the evening was the presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Award to two game show icons, Monty Hall of the original “Let’s Make A Deal,” and legendary producer, Bob Stewart, of “The Price is Right,” “Password,” and “Pyramid” fame.  Wayne Brady, who is the present host of Monty Hall’s famous “Let’s Make A Deal, presented him with the honor.  The one and only Betty White, who worked with Bob Stewart and was a dear friend, presented the honor to Stewart’s son, Sande, in a touching tribute.
