New York, NY - April 10, 2012 - TV Land announced today that the cast and show creator behind the cutting-edge and witty CBS series, "Murphy Brown" - Candice Bergen, Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto, Charles Kimbrough, Grant Shaud and Diane English - will be honored with the Impact Award at the "TV Land Awards" 10th Anniversary celebration, taping Saturday, April 14 at the Lexington Avenue Armory at Gramercy Park in New York City. Previously announced honorees include "In Living Color" (which now includes former Fly Girl Carrie Ann Inaba), "Laverne & Shirley," "One Day At A Time," "Pee-wee's Playhouse" and Aretha Franklin. The "TV Land Awards" 10th Anniversary will air on Sunday, April 29 at 9pm ET/PT.

Additionally, TV Land announced presenters for the show, including esteemed journalist and news anchor Katie Couric and actress Fran Drescher, who will be on hand to pay homage to some of television and music's biggest stars.

"Murphy Brown," the recipient of this year's Impact Award, infused hot topic current events and shined a light on real-life career and personal issues. The revolutionary show starred Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) Award-winning actress Candice Bergen as title character Murphy Brown, a reporter for successful primetime news show "FYI." With the help of her friends and co-workers - Frank Fontana (Joe Regalbuto), Corky Sherwood (Faith Ford), Jim Dial (Charles Kimbrough) and Miles Silverberg (Grant Shaud) - Murphy was a star journalist who truly had it all, even becoming a single mother later in the series. The show created some of the most memorable episodes with help from guest stars and fellow "TV Land Awards" honorees and presenters Aretha Franklin and Katie Couric. "Murphy Brown" aired on CBS from 1988 to 1998.

Past presenters include Academy Award(C)-winner Halle Berry, Barbara Walters, Justin Timberlake, Ray Romano, Steve Carell, Billy Crystal, Sharon Stone, Robin Williams and Academy Award(C)-nominee Robert Downey, Jr., to name a few. Past musical performers include Liza Minnelli, Stevie Wonder, Blondie, Diana Ross, Willie Nelson and Lionel Richie.
