Details on Stephanie Edwards' deal

She's getting $50,000 to make nice and sit in the KTLA Rose Parade booth with Bob Eubanks again, says columnist Frank Mickadeit at the Register.

A couple of weeks ago, longtime parade telecast producer Joe Quasarano called Edwards out of the blue. "We're wondering if you'd like to return to the parade," he said. The three went to lunch in Studio City Stephanie continued to live in the Valley and [station VP John] Maczulski said, "We think we just maybe jumped the gun," Edwards recalled yesterday.

Maczulski heard what you folks had been trying to tell his predecessors: That Bob & Stephanie were a tradition and seen as a team. "Comfort food" on New Year's morning is the way, she puts it.

Stephanie got a two-year contract for $50,000 a year that amount she asked for because it was what she'd heard Bob made. "They said, 'Stephanie, if you need $50,000, you shall have $50,000.' I almost fell down."

"I'm very moved and humbled by this," she told me.

Here was Tuesday's news that Edwards has accepted an invitation to come in out of the cold and work the parade for KTLA again.
