Dunphy nabs Governors Award

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has awarded the 1993 Los Angeles Area Governors Emmy Award to veteran local TV news anchor Jerry Dunphy.

Dunphy, who is currently anchoring Disney-owned indie KCAL-TV’s 8 and 10 p.m. weeknight newscasts, has spent 40 years in TV news–30 of them in L.A.

From 1960-75, he served as anchor for KNXT (now KCBS-TV) and his tenure there included anchoring the pioneering “Big News.”

Dunphy moved to KABC-TV, where he spent 14 years until his move to KCAL in July 1989 under a lucrative five-year, multimillion-dollar contract.

The Governors Award recognizes individuals, shows or organizations that have made a special contribution to the L.A. market. Previous recipients include Ted Meyers, Johnny Grant, Hal Fishman, Bill Stout, Stan Chambers, Ralph Story, Clete Roberts, Rush Ashton Taylor, Bell Welsh and Vin Scully.

The presentation will be held June 5 at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium during the L.A. Area Emmy Awards.
