WNBC was the big winner Sunday night at the 46th annual New York Emmy Awards.
The Peacock flagship entered the night with the most nominations (42) and took home a leading 12 awards, including single morning news program, event coverage and business/consumer programming.
Three stations shared second-place honors: News 12 Long Island, WABC and WPIX each took home seven Emmys. WPIX news reporter Mary Murphy was the most honored on the night, earning three awards.
Other winners included Telemundo affiliate WNJU for a single newscast (under 35 minutes) about the death of a bride and WWOR in the instant breaking news category for its coverage of the crash of flight 587. Pubcaster WNET earned honors in the political programming category for its profiles of New York’s mayoral candidates.
Sept. 11 coverage was recognized separately so as not to overwhelm the categories. Sen. Charles Schumer presented special awards in nine categories. Three of those wins went to WNBC: continuing story, single hard news story and news special. Fox station WNYW was recognized for its coverage of a breaking story on that day.
Awards were hosted by Gotham chapter prexy Maury Povich and handed out at the Regent Ballroom.
