C-SPAN to Be Saluted for Election Coverage


The National Television Academy will present C-SPAN with a “special recognition award for outstanding coverage of the American electoral process,” the academy said Thursday.

The award will be presented at the News and Documentary Emmy Awards ceremony Sept. 13 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York.

The Academy said in a prepared statement that it is recognizing C-SPAN for carrying “hundreds of hours of candidate appearances, from the earliest primaries to the present.”
