The WB’s WPIX beat the Peacock’s flagship Gotham station in picking up the most New York Emmy Awards on Sunday night, largely for its coverage of the first anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
WPIX went home with 11 Emmys, followed by WNBC — the leader for much of the past decade — which took nine awards. WNBC came into the competition with the most noms (32).
Administered by the New York Chapter of the National Television Academy, awards covered the 2002-2003 TV season.
In two of the most coveted categories, WCBS’ coverage of the July 2003 City Hall shooting won an Emmy for single newscast under 35 minutes, while Fox WNYW’s 10 p.m. news program picked up the award for single Newscast over 35 minutes.
WCBS also walked away with the Emmy for coverage of an instant breaking news story for its reporting on the August 2003 blackout.
WNBC won Emmys for single hard news story, multipart hard news story and single news feature.
The Emmy for investigative journalism went to WWOR.
WABC picked up an Emmy for entertainment programming: single story or special; while Time Warner NY1 News won for entertainment programming: segment(s).
Telemeundo WNJU news anchor Natalia Cruz picked up the Emmy for on-camera achievement for a news anchor/host.
Also at the 47th annual New York Emmy Awards ceremony, WNBC and WNJU VP for station relations Anna Carbonell was honored with the Board of Governors’ Award.
