ABC7, KTLA5 and NBC4 Top 64th Los Angeles Area Emmys
The three stations each win in seven categories; pioneering sports producer-director Susan Stratton receives Governors Award.
Three stations — ABC7, KTLA5 and NBC4 — led the winners at the 64th Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards with seven honors each. And for the second consecutive year, NBC4 scored a trifecta, taking all three of the highly competitive regularly scheduled newscast categories. NBC4 also led all winners in 2011 and 2010. The Los Angeles Area Emmys honor excellence in programming produced by and for the Los Angeles market. At this year’s ceremony, held once again at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre on the grounds of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, awards were given in more than 40 categories, spanning all facets of news, sports and public affairs programming. In addition, the prestigious Governors Award was given to Susan Stratton, a trailblazer for women in sports broadcasting and a veteran producer-director at KCAL9 for nearly 30 years.
