Chronicle: Miller

Longtime CMA Awards Exec. Producer, Producer and Consulting Producer Walter C. Miller passed away Nov. 13 at the age of 94. “Walter was an absolute television legend,” says CMA CEO Sarah Trahern. “When you worked with him, you instantly knew you were in the presence of greatness. He brought so much innovation and brilliance to the CMA Awards over the 40 years he worked with the organization.” Miller’s television career began in the late 1940s, while his work as CMA Awards producer began with the show’s third annual telecast. He also directed and produced the Emmy Awards, People’s Choice Awards, Grammy Awards and the Tony Awards. Miller was nominated for 19 Emmys and took home five between 1972 and 1999 with four of the wins coming from his work on the Tonys. In 2007, Miller was awarded the CMA President’s Award, and two years later, he was honored with the CMA Irving Waugh Award celebrating his years of service to the organization. He was only the fifth to receive the honor, following Waugh, Frances Preston, Jo Walker-Meador and Johnny Cash. Services are pending.
