Shrine Auditorium Looks for Corporate Sponsor
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
And one other note: one of the most famous venues in Los Angeles is considering a name change. The Shrine Auditorium is seeking a corporate sponsor.
The theater has been known for hosting events like the Emmys and the Oscars, and the owners are hoping that a sponsor will pay up to $4 million each year to place a name on the auditorium.
Just as Oscar-nominated actresses more or less have been paid through the years to wear a certain dress there, the auditorium will get paid to wear a logo.
