Brad Perry, the former Channel 3 broadcaster has a new gig. The former Good Morning Arizona weather man, an all around good guy, who I had the unenviable task of panning after The Arizona Republic conveniently sidestepped the question of musical talent in their feature, has been hired on at Celebrity Theatre.
Don't worry, he's not fronting the house band. As of the end of September, Perry is the "official Master of Ceremonies" for the circular venue. He will host concerts, emcee charity auctions, announce Sanderson Music Series' 'front row' winners as well as upcoming events.
"Brad's wit and audience-friendly demeanor make him the ideal spokesperson for what is going to be our biggest fall season yet for music and comedy," says Celebrity's Talent Buyer Alycia Klein. "He adds a whole new dynamic to the shows and we're fortunate to have him on board."
We're very happy to hear Perry has landed on his feet and look forward to hearing him at Celebrity.
