Anthony Morina, (Executive Producer, Y&R) noted: “We all miss Kristoff immensely and are understandably still in a bit of shock.

Beyond estactic that the pwtb have graciously put aside their differences with Victoria Rowell to honor the life of Kristoff
His fans know how special and treasured his onscreen and offscreen relationship with Victoria was!
Ofcourse it was never doubted that if offered Mishael and Shemar would be present!
Thank you to Tony and Josh and everyone else involved for giving Kristoff the tribute he deserves
Greedily i also wish Olivia and Mamie would also appear
Cant wait…
Hopefully on a sidenote i hope if anything goods come out of this would be the beginning of mending Victorias relationship with Y n r and getting ball rolling for her or Mishaela return. Both were so vital to y n r!
Cant wait!..Neils presence if and always will be missed

It’s nice to see that Y&R has planned a special tribute for Neil and not a lazy send-off for a legacy character that truly changed the face of the show. I credit that to the new EP and Head Writer, because under Mal Young, Kristoff St. John’s airtime was drastically reduced, and Neil was underused in story when he could (and should) have been front-and-center. It’s too bad that Neil wasn’t involved in more front-burner story over the last few years, and it doesn’t make his passing any easier, but it’s nice that Y&R will be honouring his memory with a proper storyline. And it will be great to see Shemar, Victoria and Mishael back on screen, even if it will be brief.

Yes, I was hoping to see more of Neil/Kristoff and I think we would have.

I wonder if they will bring back Sofia, Mamie, Olivia or Moses? Neil and Olivia had unfinished business so she should DEFINITELY show up. I would love to see Mamie too. Here is hoping! Will Lily be sprung from the clink? Christel and Kristoff were close but I havent seen any news about her returning which is odd.

It is a lovely and creative response to honor one who left us far too soon.

I’m just sad Kristoff never truly had THE front burner storyline in so many years. I think that might have changed with the new regime. BTW, you start seeing Josh Griffith’s name as co head writer on Wednesday’s show.

All I’m going to say is this, Y&R better do Mr. St. John and Neil justice.

This is a legacy character that deserves a legacy send off.

Very ecstatic to see Ms. Rowell is included, even if it’s a self portrayal.

Even though we all have an ideal wish list, what is being presented so far sounds promising, respectable.

Hopefully this will become a continuous mending period to resurrect Drucilla and at least have a permanent surviving Winters to carry the Winters legacy.

Brings tears, so glad they are not only doing something special with the plot-line and the return of Mr. Moore, but an additional tribute. Ms. Morgan and Ms. Rowell were gems and it’s only fitting they will contribute. Much respect and continued prayers.

I think it’s great that Shemar is still willing to return to Y&R and he always remembers and honors his time there.

I will have to have the tissues handy.

NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision: “These were extremely difficult decisions to make, but at the end of the day the health and safety of our event attendees and staff must remain our paramount concern,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision. “We are closely monitoring public heath authorities’ guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we plan for the future in this unprecedented context.”

 NATAS chairman Terry O’Reilly said on the change” “Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June.  As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
