PASADENA, Calif. (UMNS)With the pull of a rope and an introduction from actress Carol Burnett, studios 36 and 46 at CBS Television City were renamed the Charles Cappleman Studios.
Charles "Capp" Cappleman, 78, an active United Methodist layman at St. Pauls United Methodist Church in Tarzana, Calif., and executive vice president of West Coast operations and engineering, retired from CBS Television City after 50 years. He is credited with being the creative vision behind the new building at CBS Television City, completed in 1992, that houses studios 36 and 46, now the Charles Cappleman Studios.
My 50 years at Television City have been great fun and provided tremendous satisfaction in being a member of such a great organization,said Cappleman during the surprise retirement/birthday celebration attended by hundreds at CBS Television City.
I have no retirement plans, other than to continue with most of the volunteer jobs I have, Cappleman said. The Lord has always been good to me, and I am waiting to see what He has in mind for me.
