The winner will be honored at the guild’s 59th annual Publicists Awards, set for March 25 at the Beverly Hilton. The TV nominees were announced in November.
The recipients of the Motion Picture Showman of the Year Award and the Television Showman of the Year Award will be announced soon, and the Bob Yeager Award for Community Service will be announced at the ceremony.
