The Daytime Emmy Awards have settled on a date and a location — now all they need is a TV deal.
The 41st ceremony will be held June 22 at the Beverly Hilton. The date had been in flux as the New York-based National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences shops for a new TV deal for the ceremony.
The kudocast had been carried by news cabler HLN for the past two years. Negotiations for this year’s ceremony are going down to the wire but NATAS indicated confidence that a deal will be reached.
The Daytime Emmys have struggled to maintain a TV home amid low ratings for the kudocast and broader changes in the daytime viewing landscape.
The Creative Arts portion of the Daytime Emmys will be handed out June 20 at downtown L.A.’s Bonaventure Hotel.
