Posted on October 23, 2015 by Dave - Carson Entertainment Group | 1 comment
90 years ago today, Johnny Carson, known as "The King of Late Night" and one of the biggest television stars ever, was born in Corning, Iowa. Johnny Carson became a bona fide Entertainment Icon and American institution as the host of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson on NBC from 1962-1992. According to his New York Times obituary: "During his reign, Mr. Carson was the most powerful single performer on television. He discovered or promoted new talent like Barbara Streisand and David Letterman; provided a consistent spotlight for show business warhorses like Don Rickles and Buddy Hackett; advanced the careers of emerging stars like Woody Allen, Steve Martin and, of course his successor, Jay Leno; and helped keep older performers like Jimmy Stewart and William Demarest in the public eye."
