Day­time Emmy Awards mov­ing to cable

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

LOS AN­GE­LES — The Day­time Emmy Awards have found a new home at cable news chan­nel HLN.

The chan­nel said it will air the 39th an­nual awards cer­e­mony live from Bev­erly Hills on June 23.

The awards, which aired on CBS for the past two years, will move from broad­cast to cable for the first time. The cer­e­mony strug­gled to find a net­work home as soap op­eras, once day­time’s big draw, slipped in pop­u­lar­ity and their num­bers dwin­dled.

In a state­ment, HLN ex­ec­u­tive Scot Sa­fon said the news chan­nel has cov­ered the Day­time Em­mys in the past and, he said, is “ex­cited to also be car­ry­ing the event it­self.”

Last year’s Day­time Emmy win­ners in­clude The Dr. Oz Show, The Ellen Degeneres Show and The Bold & The Beau­ti­ful.
