It’ll be a “Big Bang” in Las Vegas


Emmy nominee and star of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” Jim Parsons will receive the 2010 NAB Television Chairman’s Award during the NAB Show Television Luncheon on Monday, April 12 at the Las Vegas Hilton.

“Jim Parsons is a singularly gifted comedic talent who provides laugh-out-loud entertainment every Monday night on CBS. His breakthrough performance has helped revitalize the sitcom genre, and NAB is proud to recognize him during this year’s NAB Show,” said NAB Television Board Chairman Paul Karpowicz, President of Meredith Corporation Broadcast Group.

Parsons has been nominated for several awards for his role as Sheldon Cooper, a highly intellectual theoretical physicist on Warner Bros. Television’s “The Big Bang Theory,” co-created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady. His other television credits have included a recurring role on the CBS show “Judging Amy” and an appearance on the NBC program “Ed.”
