Daytime Emmy Awards Leave CBS, Find New Home on Cable

May 25, 2012  •  Post A Comment

With about a month to go until the Daytime Emmy Awards on June 23, a deal has been completed to move the annual awards show to HLN, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The telecast will shift from CBS and air on cable for the first time, the story notes.

The awards show was left without a home when CBS, which had aired it for the two previous years, failed to make room for the telecast on its schedule, the story notes.

"Other broadcast networks declined to pick up the Daytime Emmys, which have struggled to stay relevant in the face of declining ratings and outright cancellation of once mighty daytime soap operas," the story points out.

A host hasn’t yet been named, the piece adds.
