The 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will air on Pop, the network formerly known as TV Guide Network.
Last year’s ceremony was broadcast online, and the low-budget affair received much criticism. This year, the black-tie event will be broadcast from Warner Bros. Studios.
“Our new partnership with the Pop network is an ideal platform to present our signature gala,” Bob Mauro, president of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences said in a statement. “With the Warner Bros. Studios as our venue, where so many great films and television shows have been made, coupled together with Michael Levitt, our executive producer, who created the TV Land Awards and has produced numerous live event specials including The Producers Guild Awards, The Billboard Music Awards, and E! Live from the Red Carpet shows for the Golden Globes and Oscars, this promises to be a very special telecast of the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.
“As a network that celebrates talent, we are thrilled to bring the Daytime Emmy Awards back to television for the fans,” Pop President Brad Schwartz said in a statement of his own. “Daytime audiences are some of the most amazing and passionate in all of television, and we are proud to honor the greatest works and achievements of daytime. Adding premium live events to our schedule is just another exciting way we are building Pop. We’re going to have a lot of fun with this.”
The 42nd annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be broadcast live onSunday, April 26 at 8/7c.
