HOLLYWOOD — A star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame honoring Ken Corday, the five-time Emmy winning executive producer of the NBC daytime drama “Days of Our Lives,” was unveiled May 15.
Actor Andy Garcia joined Corday in speaking in the 11:30 a.m. ceremony in front of the Eastown apartment complex near Hollywood Boulevard and Gower Street.
The star is next that of longtime “Days of Our Lives” cast member Deidre Hall. The ceremony came six days after the anniversary of the birth of Corday’s late father Ted, who co-created “Days of Our Lives” with the younger Corday’s mother Betty.
Ken Corday was “Days of Our Lives” music composer for nearly 10 years before becoming assistant producer in 1980, producer in 1981 and executive producer in May 1985.
“Days of Our Lives” has won two Daytime Emmy Awards for outstanding drama series since Corday became executive producer, most recently in 2015.
Corday remains as “Days of Our Lives” music composer, winning Daytime Emmys for outstanding music direction and composition for a drama series in 1990, 1997 and 2016.
