Today, my friends and family are coming. I am not polite to you, since I am not an outsider.
Before you go, you can say, dont send flowers today. Send me a microphone.
I hope I am full of microphone. Close the eyes in the microphone, I am sure I am calm.
The host Li Yong designed his own farewell ceremony in his 2009 autobiography Yong Yuan You Li.
No one had thought that the day would come so suddenly. On October 29, Li Yongs wife, Harvin, announced in a microblog post that Li Yong had died: In the United States, after 17 months of anti-cancer treatment, on October 25, 2018, at 5:20 a.m., I will never love... This year, Li Yong Gang was just 50 years old. According to media reports, Li Yongs family had held a funeral for him at 10:00 a.m. local time on the 28th at the Franklin Campbell funeral home on 1076 Madison Avenue in New York.
Fame is zero
Li Yong was born in May 3, 1968 in Urumqi, Xinjiang. In 1987, he was admitted to Communication University of China at the age of 19. After graduation, he entered the television industry. Li Yong began to be well known after he became the host of lucky 52. At that time, his bleached long curly hair, fancy dress suits, and nightclub hot-spot style of hosting marked his distinction from other CCTV hosts, but also his self-assertive for the then new atmosphere of Chinese entertainment.
In fact, it is Li Yong who brings lucky 52 to CCTV. In 1998, Li Yong, a student of the GO BINGO, who sold the big British entertainment program in China, found him. At that time, Li Yong was also the director and host of CCTV overseas center. Li Yong teased himself at that time, the popularity is zero, familiar colleagues know I am theEnd of the Earth at this timehost, unfamiliar only know that I am all day long on both sides of the Strait to seek relatives.
Li Yong was shocked by GO? BINGO. The winner of the prize was a live guess, and the program finally dropped the money from the ceiling, with the maximum bonus of 20,000 pounds. He immediately recommended the program to CCTVs external leaders, and the answer was that it was not suitable for CCTV. He did not give up, and went to the two sets of Art Center and CCTV. Three months later, Tan Xisong, director of the CCTV Advertising Information Center, bought the copyright for 400,000 pounds. Lucky 52 has become the first program introduced by China. And it was a very rare separation of production and broadcast program - the program group is responsible for production, investment, late promotion, advertising transactions are solely authorized by CCTV production company to undertake.
On November 22, 1998, Lucky 52 was broadcast at 7:15 a.m. on Sunday, and the ratings soared after that. Three months later, Lucky 52 was moved to 11:15 p.m. on Sundays, entering the prime time period. That year, Hunan TVs trump card happy camp has just started. Lucky 52 is the leader of the national entertainment program.
Li Yong was also famous. He didnt have a broadcasting accent, a fancy shape and dared to make jokes. He caused a lot of shock on the CCTV screen at that time. The audience was willing to imitate his yah action. Li Yong is prepared for this. In his autobiography, he said that he had consciously undertaken the mission of bottoming out from the moment he devoted himself to the entertainment industry. This sentence has been expressed differently in different interviews, and the most well-known one is Li Yong calls himself the baseline of CCTV entertainment.
But where is the bottom line, Li Yong is not. From lucky 52, he has been asking himself, to what extent is it appropriate? To this end, Li Yong found an experimental field outside CCTV. In 1999, Li Yong went to Dalian TV station to take the lead and presided over a large-scale program called a long time together. The core of the program is the same as lucky 52: winning. But the form is more exciting: ten lottery tickets, hidden in all corners of Dalian city, the national treasure hunt, as long as found in the program live time limit, and rushed to the live broadcast site, on the spot cash. On one occasion, Li Yong made an idea to hide the lottery tickets at the entrance of the municipal government and under the fence base of the flagpole of Victory Square. Thousands of people dispatched Qi Qi, alerting the then mayor of Dalian. After that, Li Yong received a serious criticism education - a long family fire, Li Yong? Style but suddenly stopped.
During the SARS epidemic in 2003, Lucky 52 was suspended and Li Yong entered a new program research and development team. The goal was to produce a new program with a ratings not lower than Lucky 52, replacing the return of three sets of Zhengda Variety Arts. The new program was named Very 6+1 and its climax was the egg-smashing link between talent performances: Li Yong was connected to the audience, and the audience selected one of the 20 golden eggs and broke it open to win the prize. Li Yong played his own host brand here, changing all kinds of ridiculous ways when he called the audience: pretending the bad signal, pretending to be a gas company, saying the other party owed the phone; the callers were happy to see their relatives shout Yong Ge after the mystery was revealed, selecting gold eggs, and taking prizes.
Freedom of choice
In 2013, after several famous speakers jumped out of CCTV in Longmen, Li Yong also jumped. He transferred the personnel files from CCTV to Communication University of China, and continued to host programs outside the system. He has hosted five satellite TV programs in one year, catching up with the total number of programs hosted by CCTV in the past 22 years.
Li Yong once said in an interview that in the past, CCTV had enough time. From intent to roughly deduce, to the final trial sample, once again, again, to start industrial production, plus fine-tuning, this process will take a few months, to local satellite TV, program seasonal broadcast, commercial operation, where is that? If you dont move quickly, you may be copied. He also likened the program to women. In the past, she wanted to marry me, and you had to marry her. Now its a commercial production. Its a very good friend of the opposite sex. Li Yong said that the choice of programs now depends solely on their own preferences, freedom to see how you understand, want to do what is not freedom, do not want to do what is not done, this is freedom.
Good morning, shop assistant.
Apart from work, Li Yongs devotion to family is impressive. At the beginning of his autobiography, Yong Yuan You Li, he wrote, The eldest of us is our eldest --- my daughter, another eldest --- my wife, and then my relatives. Family is a big event. Li Yong and his wife, havin, are classmates and colleagues who have made achievements along the way. In Harvins eyes, she and Li Yong complement each other. Li Yong is a man with many ideas, but his problem is that he has 10 ideas today and will remain on them tomorrow. With me, Ill be able to land one today, another tomorrow, and put his ideas into practice. After two people left CCTV, havin set up a start-up company cool entertainment video. At a press conference, someone asked Li Yong, are you a husband and wife shop? Li Yong quickly turned into a little man and smiled at Harvin under the stage. No, no, no, this is Hartai. Im a shop boy. In the family, Li Yong has always been a recognized model father in the circle. Li Yong once said in a speech that his future son-in-law was his greatest rival, and made some demands on the little boy who would spend his life with his daughter: even if your shoulders were not broad enough, let my daughter be dependable.
Three people on micro-blog, a family of three interactive and happy everyday is the warmest content. Someone noticed that from April to May 2017, Harbin had posted Good Morning Post on his micro-blog every day, counting the time. Perhaps Harbin knew that Li Yong was ill. And Li Yongs last micro-blog freeze was on Thanksgiving Day in 2017. In November 23rd, he sent a blessing message to his wife, daughter and everyone.
Guan Zhengwen, chief writer of lucky 52, recalls Li Yong:
The prepared paragraph was described as a cold joke by him.
But he was born to eat this bowl of rice and soon found his way. Lucky 52 was really a fire, and eventually recorded live, Li Yong has not yet appeared, the scene has been crazy. As he stood on the stage, everyone began to laugh and laugh from beginning to end.
After that, almost all the programs of Li Yong were called to me. From very 6+1 to Ode to music, from Dream China to Spring Festival Gala. He said that only I know him best can find the way to host a new program together. Every time I would accompany him for a few months, then I would be busy with my own affairs. Later I set up my own company, the first office rented in Beijing outside the SOHO, with Li Yongjia is next door. When he was idle, he often came over with beer and said whatever he could, and went home after drinking. He loves to keep fit, he always goes to the gym, and he often comes to show my muscles. He never had any illness, and he never felt unhappy. He was always eager to do something new. Why did you leave?
Li Yong came over more frequently before leaving CCTV. Of course he hated his old employer. He just didnt want to repeat himself all the time. He just wanted to do something new that would make him feel new. Just last year, we agreed to make a new program called dear, you know. Unfortunately, I work too slowly, this agreement has become an eternal regret. Now, the eyeful is the scene of cooperation in the past, the scene of life. He brought so much joy to everyone, but he walked so lonely and lonely.
CCTV: goodbye, Li Yong! I miss you on the screen; I miss you on the program; I thank you for leaving your laughter and joy to the audience! I wish you all the best!
Zhang Bin: In the early summer of 1991, confused by the graduation assignment, I met Mr. Wu Yu in front of the old Taifang Tower. She told me happily that a young man named Li Yong was assigned to the stage. This was the first time I heard the name and I was envious of it.
Two years ago, I happened to meet Li Yong in the waiting room of Shanghai Railway Station. I had a long chat with him. I was filled with laughter when I heard him tell me about the great choices of life made by Harbin and his wife. On weekdays, I saw this happy family in a warm time shared by havin in my circle of friends. Li Yongs youth is definitely worthy of her daughters youth. Indeed, they havent heard from them for a long time. They must have been through the difficult anticancer days.
Li Yong, the symbol of the times, the symbol of happiness, the endorsement of mass entertainment. More importantly, he has convinced our peers of the same profession that our industry can have dreams and make people successful. Thank you! Feng Xiaogang: wake up and smell Li Yongs death. The first time I met him in Nanjing many years ago, he was invited by the Chinese Film Directors Association to preside over the directorsmeetings in the three places across the Straits. I was impressed. Later, there was cooperation. He was kind and funny and dedicated. Handsome. In the past seventeen months, havin worked hard and sent away his brother to take a good rest. Yang Lan: Its hard to express the shock and regret after hearing the news. Li Yong rest in peace. Harbin and his family take care of themselves. Ni Ping: I feel very sad. Li Yong, go all the way! Havin is strong and sad. Zhang Ziyi: sorry, Im sorry. Shen Teng: Thank you for your company. Source: Beiqing Net - Beijing Youth Daily editor: Lee Si _NBJ11322
