Billy Crystal to Lead Robin Williams Tribute at Emmy Awards

KNWA -- Billy Crystal will lead a tribute to Robin Williams at Monday’s 66th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Emmycast EP Don Mischer announced Monday Crystal would lead the tribute during the award ceremony's regular In Memoriam segment. Crystal and Whoopi Goldberg teamed up several times with Williams, who died last week, to host Comic Relief specials that raised money to help the homeless.

"Plans for the In Memoriam segment are in discussion," Mischer said in a statement. "While we are all still coming to terms with this week's tragic news, we are working to give Robin Williams the proper and meaningful remembrance he so well deserves."

Williams, 63, was found dead at his home on Aug. 11 after committing suicide.

You can watch the 66th Emmy Awards live on KNWA Monday, August 25.
