Veteran TV Mixer Ed Greene Dead at 82
TVTechnology reports that Award-winning television production mixer Ed Greene passed away on August 9, 2017, surrounded by family. Over the course of his career, Green won 22 Emmy Awards and was nominated 61 times, making him the third most-nominated individual in Emmy history, and the second biggest cumulative winner as well.
Although Greene came to be well known for his work on televised awards shows and other live primetime events, he started out as a record mixer. His first gig was a summer job, in 1954, doing voice and piano demos at Allegro Studios in New York City, where he was born and raised. The studio soon began doing full orchestral recording sessions and when Greene was drafted in 1956, he served as a recording engineer for the U.S. Army Band and Chorus in Washington, D.C.
