Johnny Rodgers

It’ll be a night of Two Legendary Nebraska Johnnys at the Hollywood Salon TONIGHT: Monday, November 12th.  Our special guest tonight will be one of the greatest players in Husker Football history, Johnny Rodgers. Johnny was the first Heisman Trophy winner from Nebraska, and played during some of the most exciting years of Nebraska football under Coach Bob Devaney in the late 60s and early 70s. He is the author of “Era of Greatness,” his new book about the players and coaches that ESPN has called the best college football team of all time. Johnny is starting a new entertainment enterprise in Omaha, and will be coming to his first Salon to make connections with all of us in the Nebraska Coast. Don’t miss the chance to meet a real Cornhusker living legend.  And help us honor another legendary Nebraska Johnny, the late great Johnny Carson, as we celebrate the recent opening of the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film at UNL. We’ll have a full report and photos from the grand reopening of the Temple Building, where big renovations in the theatres and new film production facilities were just dedicated. Come see how Johnny Carson’s gifts to his old alma mater have transformed the place where he got his start. It’s going to be an amazing night at the Hollywood Salon…TONIGHT!  We’ll have great refreshments, sign-ups for the Holiday Party and caroling, plus some of the best raffle prizes of the year. It all starts at 8pm at CBS-Television City, so RSVP now (details are on our website at www.nebraskacoast.com).  Hope to see you there!  Come to the Salon to meet friends. Old ones & new ones…to build your career…to find inspiration…to share your news and share your dreams…to have a taste of home.
