Ehrlicvh announced as Grammys producer

LONG-TERM BROMANCE: Here’s a shocker. The Recording Academy has announced that Ken Ehrlich and AEG Ehrlich Ventures will produce the 55th Annual Grammy Awards—which is like announcing that coffee will be served with cream and sugar. Ehrlich and his company will also, as always, produce The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! — Countdown to Music's Biggest Night. "Ken's expertise and vision are matched by his vast knowledge and genuine love of music, and these qualities have made him an outstanding producer and the executive producer of the Grammy Awards for more than 30 years now," said Neil Portnow. "We couldn't be more pleased to continue our long-standing partnership and, more importantly, I am proud to call him my good friend." Added Neil’s BFF: "There is no relationship in our industry that I treasure more than the 33-year association I've had with the Recording Academy, and the prospect of extending that into the future is a true joy. I'm proud of the warm and collaborative relationship that has existed between my company and the Academy and, in particular, Neil Portnow." The Grammys will take place on Sunday, Feb. 10, from Staples Center. (11/29a)
