Mark your calendars! The 40th annual Daytime Emmy Awards will once again be broadcast over HLN, live from the Beverly Hills Hilton in Los Angeles. The ceremony will be held on Sunday, June 16, from 8:00-10:00 pm EST.
"Last year, HLN's first-ever presentation of the Daytime Emmy® Awards was the #1 most-watched, regularly-scheduled non-news broadcast in the network's history, and received terrific viewer feedback both on-air and online. Our audiences thanked us for tapping into that vital part of American pop culture," says Scot Safon, executive vice president and general manager, HLN. "HLN is the news channel that focuses on stories at the forefront of the American conversation, and daytime programming often tackles those same themes and stories. We are so happy to again present the program that honors the best work in daytime."
There are plans to include viewer interaction with the broadcast, and the names of presenters and special guests will be announced soon. As more details of the ceremony emerge, we'll be sure to share them with you!
