The many admirers of Huell Howser will gather in a salute to his memory at the Griffith Observatory in the City of Los Angeles on Tuesday, January 15, 2013 in a sunset ceremony, organized by Councilmember Tom LaBonge.
“Huell had a tremendous enthusiasm for California landmarks like the Griffith Observatory,” Councilmember Tom LaBonge, who represents the Fourth District of the City of Los Angeles. “And now we must say goodbye to our own California landmark, Huell Howser.”
Howser served as the longtime host of “California’s Gold,” the public television show on California places and people. He was a resident of the Fourth District, living on Rossmore Avenue. All members of the public are invited to gather, and a shuttle from the Greek Theatre parking lot will provide extra capacity for all who would like to come.
