Shirley Herz is getting a Tony Award Sunday night, despite never setting foot on a Broadway stage. For more than 50 years, Herz has worked as press agent. She is the first woman in the theater publicists' union to receive such an award.

Host Liane Hansen talks with Herz about her career and what it's like to sell a bad show.
