CBS leads at news and docu Emmys

'60 Minutes' takes home seven awards

The 32nd annual News and Documentary Emmy winners were a familiar crew, led by “60 Minutes,” which earned seven of CBS’ 10 kudos, putting the Eye at the top of the list. National Geographic Channel scored seven, including two each for “Explorer,” “Great Migrations” and “Restrepo.” PBS snagged six awards, including four for “POV.”

Presenters included longtime “60 Minutes” correspondent and new “CBS Evening News” anchor Scott Pelley, along with ABC investigative correspondent Brian Ross and “Washington Week” moderator-editor Gwen Ifill. Larry King accepted the TV Academy’s lifetime achievement Emmy.

Most major news orgs made a showing at the awards, although there were no wins for ABC proper this year. ABC affiliate KMGH in Denver, however, scored a regional reporting win for its story “33 Minutes to 34 Right,” which exposed flaws in Denver’s ambulance system.
