The Daytime Emmys will celebrate its 40th year with a return to cable network HLN on Sunday, June 16, at 8 p.m. according to Scot Safon, HLN executive vice president and general manager and Malachy Wienges, chairman of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
"Last year, HLN's first-ever presentation of the Daytime Emmy Awards was the No. 1 most-watched, regularly-scheduled non-news broadcast in the network's history, and received terrific viewer feedback both on-air and online. Our audiences thanked us for tapping into that vital part of American pop culture," said Safon in a statement. "HLN is the news channel that focuses on stories at the forefront of the American conversation, and daytime programming often tackles those same themes and stories. We are so happy to again present the program that honors the best work in daytime."
Receiving NATAS' Lifetime Achievement Award this year will be iconic game-show host Monty Hall, 91, who produced and hosted Let's Make a Deal, and the late game-show producer Bob Stewart, who created and produced The Price Is Right, Pyramid, To Tell the Truth and Password.
The 40th annual Daytime Emmy Awards is produced by LocoDistro. Gabriel Gornell is founder and the show's executive producer.
