Hammond to Host News and Documentary Emmys


Saturday Night Live cast member Darrell Hammond will host the 25th Annual News and Documentary Emmy Awards, Discovery Times Channel and the National Television Academy said Tuesday.

The ceremony will be held Monday, Sept. 13 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York, and Discovery Times will air it Saturday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. (EST/PST).

“We're delighted that Darrell Hammond has agreed to host this year’s ceremony,” Discovery Times senior vice president and general manager Vivian Schiller said in a prepared statement. “It's only fitting that he stand up in front of the very people he routinely skewers in his hilarious and incisive comedy sketches."
