Parents TV Council Celebrates the Life of TV Icon Andy Griffith

 

LOS ANGELES (July 3, 2012) – Today, the Parents Television Council® celebrated the life of television icon Andy Griffith, noting the many generations that grew up enjoying the quality and inspiring performances of his career. Below is a brief statement by PTC president Tim Winter.

“For almost sixty years, new generations of Americans grew up watching or listening to Andy Griffith. And for those same sixty years, without fail, we smiled. He warmed our hearts, and his authenticity in his craft made each of us feel as though we knew Andy personally. The timeless and unwavering grace of his radio, film and TV performances will bless untold generations for years to come. But today the Parents Television Council mourns the passing of someone who is more than an industry icon; we mourn the passing of a national treasure,” said PTC president Tim Winter.
