The Houston Press Club Presents
Gridiron 2016: Pokemon, Politicians and Pun(dit)s
featuring Deborah Duncan, Andy Cerota, Shern-Min Chow,
Lily Jang and a special tribute to Dave Ward!
A big thank you to all of our volunteers, sponsors and supporters who joined us for our 65th Gridiron Show!
We had a great time poking fun at the nation’s headlines and newsmakers … as you can imagine we didn’t have to work hard to find the funny!
Great Day Houston host Deborah Duncan appeared as First Lady Michelle Obama singing “Let’s Get Physical,” while KPRC’s Andy Cerota and KHOU’s Shern-Min Chow (on Friday) and KHOU’s Lily Jang (on Saturday) read the fake news.
Plus KTRK’s Jeff Ehling talked with the legendary Dave Ward about his record-setting career and his time performing in the Gridiron Show.
And Christina Wells brought down the house with her tribute to our local Olympic champions:
A big thank you to director Susan Mele and the Deer Park Art Park Players, we could not have done it without you!
During the past decade, Gridiron has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships for college juniors and seniors who will pursue a journalism career.
