My dear friend Kerri Kasem and I worked with each other when she was a top TV Host and radio DJ. She’s the daughter of the legendary DJ Casey Kasem, known by generations for hosting “The Count Down Show,” America’s Top 40, Kerri is Hollywood royalty. Stopped from visiting her father by her stepmother Jean, Kerri’s fighting to get visitation rights to see Casey before he passes away.
UPDATE – Casey Kasem has been found:Kerri Kasem won “temporary conservatorship and was appointed her father’s temporary caretaker on Monday,” although her father could not be found until today 5/15/2014 in Washington State. The family looks forward to re-uniting with Casey soon. SeeHuffington Post for updates on this story.
Do you remember Mark Burnett’s “Eco Challenge”? A terrific show he produced before “Survivor.” During Eco Challenge they interviewed a guy on the winning team. Why them? Because, he said, we never blame one another or get angry if someone makes a mistake. Adjust, make changes and move on as “we’re all in the same canoe,” we’ve got to make it work! Great friends.
