The Museum of Television & Radio will honor Sony Chairman and CEO Sir Howard Stringer and Sony Corp. at its Feb. 8 gala in New York.

Mr. Stringer’s and the company’s contributions to the media, technology and entertainment industries will be in the spotlight at the annual benefit for the museum’s activities at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York.

“They both mirror many of the facets of the media world that MTR speaks to through its work,” museum President and CEO Pat Mitchell said in Wednesday’s announcement. “And Howard is rightly admired throughout the industry for his tenacity, loyalty, innovative thinking, business diplomacy and good humor.”

Before joining Sony in 1997, the Welsh-born Mr. Stringer spent three decades at CBS, where he rose from producer and journalist to president of the CBS News division and then CBS president during an ascendant period for the network.
