It’s official. Television has sunk to a new low.
On the heels of landing a Technorati “authority” ranking now in the dozens, one of the hardest working men in communications has also been tapped to emcee the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards, it was announced Monday.
“Ike Pigott appeals to important niche audiences, including the highly desirable ‘Social Media Marketers‘, ‘Disaster Junkies‘, and ‘People Ike Goes to Church With‘ demographics, so he should serve as a magnet for attracting a diverse array of viewers to our Emmy telecast,” said Dick Askin, chairman and chief executive officer of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
Pigott also works for the American Red Cross, which in addition to putting up with his geeky-tech projects also manages to help people prepare for, prevent, and respond to emergencies.
Update: Who would you choose to be the lamest possible host?
