      • From SoapCity's write up of today's episode:
        Days of our Lives, the cornerstone of the NBC daytime line-up and one of the most popular daytime dramas in the world, aired its 9000th episode today. The cast and crew celebrated on Friday, February 9, 2001, with a party on the Days stage at NBC Studios in Burbank following the taping of the remarkable 9000th episode.

        Before cast and crew cut the '9,000th Episode' cakes at the celebration on Februay 9, Executive Producer Ken Corday paid tribute to his parents, Ted and Betty Corday, and the World War Two Generation in which the family values portrayed on Days of our Lives are based. An enlarged photograph of Ted and Betty Corday that was taken on Victory in Japan Day (August 15, 1945) was placed at one side of the cake. Blowup, vintage black and white portraits of Frances Reid (Alice Horton) and the late Macdonald Carey (Tom Horton) were placed on the other side of the cake.

        Sheraton Kalouria, Senior Vice President of Daytime Programming for NBC, was on hand to congratulate cast and crew and to present the Days family with a treasure chest containing 9,000 Hershey's Kisses, one kiss signifying each episode of NBC's number one daytime drama. "The last few years have been the most extraordinary in all the history of Days of our Lives," proclaims Ken Corday. "In the spring of 2000, Days of our Lives was honored with both the Directors Guild Award and the Writers Guild Award. In February of 2000, Days of our Lives was named Favorite Soap Opera for the second consecutive year at the broadcast of the TV Guide Awards, the largest poll in television history. Days was recently nominated a third consecutive year for a Prism Award, recognizing the fetal alcohol syndrome storyline of Hope's baby." (The Prism Awards, selected by the Entertainment Industries Council, honors responsible programming of drug, alcohol, and addiction depiction.)

        "At 9000 episodes and counting, Days of our Lives is creatively stronger than ever," proudly states Ken Corday. "After an eight-year absence, Matt Ashford recently returned as Jack Deveraux amongst great fanfare, and Melissa Reeves' return as Jennifer Horton last September has been a triumph. I am most excited that during the past few years, Head Writer Tom Langan has brilliantly focused a great deal of attention on establishing young characters with strong family ties that are the future of Salem. Tom Langan's introduction of an aged Belle, Brady, Shawn, and Philip (Kirsten Storms, Kyle Lowder, Jason Cook, and Jay Kenneth Johnson) along with the introduction of Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) and Mimi (Farah Fath) has rejuvenated the show. Fran Bascom, our casting director, has assembled a dynamic group of young actors that keep getting better and better. The future of Salem looks very bright indeed."
        "9000 episodes is a landmark achievement in television," proclaimed Jeff Zucker, President, NBC Entertainment. "Congratulations to Ken Corday and the entire team that brings us Days of our Lives."
        "The non-stop pace of soaps makes the cast and crew of Days of our Lives among the hardest working in television. This 9000th episode is testimony to the talent and commitment they bring to their work, " stated Sheraton Kalouria, Senior Vice President, NBC Daytime Programs.
        Len Grossi, President of Columbia Tri-Star Television offered his congratulations to Ken Corday and the Days of our Lives family: "We're delighted to be a part of this landmark event. Just think of what it means for Ken and the entire Days family to achieve the 9000 episode milestone-it's a testament to the outstanding creativity, dedication and staying power to everyone connected with this show. We wish them every success as they continue with their remarkable run."
