HLN, the cable network that has broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards for the previous two years, has decided not to make a commitment for the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards this year.
As first reported by Soaps In Depth, the decision was made this early so the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences could explore other options for the broadcast. “Having the show on HLN was a wonderful experience for us,” explained David Michaels, senior executive director of the Daytime Emmy Awards, to the publication. “We are currently exploring other avenues so that the Daytime Emmys will have a broadcast home.“
