LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ed Sullivan will be back in front of an audience soon, but it won't be a big show.
An 18-inch solid bronze statue of the legendary television variety show host was recovered by Los Angeles police Thursday, four days after it was stolen.
The LAPD says the 20-pound statue is in good condition. They gave no details on where it was found or who may have taken it.
The statue was taken Sunday from atop an outdoor pedestal at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Hall of Fame Plaza in North Hollywood.
The plaza where the statue stood honors significant TV personalities and pioneers. Sullivan's classic variety show, "The Ed Sullivan Show," lasted for more than two decades. He died in 1974.
