A Cal Poly alumnus will get his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Monday. 

Weird Al Yankovic, known for his parody songs and comedic music videos, revealed the big announcement on Twitter earlier in August. 

He tweeted Sunday that his star will be unveiled Monday morning and he will speak with National Radio Hall of Fame member Dr. Demento and comedian Thomas Lennon. 

Yankovic retweeted a picture of his start being made. 

Yankovic was inducted into the Cal Poly journalism department’s Mustang Media Hall of Fame in 2016.
