Daytime Emmys Poised to Leave CBS for Cable News Channel

May 4, 2012  •  Post A Comment

The Daytime Emmy Awards, which have been televised on CBS for the past two years, may move to cable news channel HLN this year, B&C reports.

The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is working out a deal with the channel, which is owned by Time Warner, the story reports.

The academy is also seeking to work with AOL as a social media partner, the piece adds.

The awards will take place Saturday, June 23, at the Beverly Hilton. The ceremony has been finding it hard to stay relevant in recent years given the rate at which soap operas are being canceled and replaced by talk shows, the story points out.

Nominations were originally scheduled to be announced today, but the announcement has been moved to Wednesday, May 9, to allow the organization to firm up the deals with media partners, the story says.
