    A brazen burglar went to a North Hollywood exhibit and stole a solid bronze statue of iconic TV host Ed Sullivan worth an estimated $45,000, police said Monday.

    The 18-inch-long, 20-pound statue was reported missing from its pedestal Sunday morning from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’s Hall of Fame Plaza at 5220 Lankershim Blvd. in North Hollywood.

    The statue, along with other tributes to classic TV personalities and pioneers, was being displayed in an outdoor exhibit.

    Investigators were reviewing surveillance video at the plaza. They were also contacting local metal recycling yards for possible sightings.

    Anyone with information was asked to contact the LAPD’s North Hollywood burglary detectives at (818) 623-4081.
