The 32nd Annual News & Documentary Emmy Awards will be presented tonight, Monday, Sept. 26, 2011, by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) at Frederick P. Rose Hall, Home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, located in the Time Warner Center in New York City.
Writes NATAS Chairman Malachy Wienges in the program guide, "The journalists, documentarians and organizations we honor this evening bring us the world and make us witness to the ever changing geopolitical landscape, the constant struggle for freedom and human rights, the fight to eliminate HIV and other pandemics and allow us to ponder the questions of who we are and how we live our lives. I can’t think of more important work, and we at the National Academy wish to congratulate all of the nominees for their outstanding contribution to excellence in television."
Furthermore, former President Bill Clinton is among several who have written salutes in the program guide to this year’s Lifetime Achievement Honoree, Larry King. Writes Clinton: "Larry was a direct line to the American people. Before social media made everyone a journalist and instantaneous coverage normal, events that changed the course of American history happened in real time on Larry’s show."
