KTTV grabs 24 local Emmy noms

Sister cabler Fox Sports Net scores 15 noms

Fox-owned KTTV dominated the nomination tally for the 56th annual Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards, pulling down 24 — almost double its nearest broadcast competitor.

Sister cabler Fox Sports Net scored 15 noms, while Viacom’s KCBS-TV and KCAL-TV were next, with 13 and 12, respectively.

Univision’s KMEX was recognized with the Los Angeles Area Governors Award for its newscast segment “34 a su lado” (“34 by Your Side”). Segment offers information and aid for viewers in need.

“KMEX is doing a tremendous job providing professional advice and assistance to the Latino community through ’34 a su lado,'” Academy of TV Arts & Sciences chairman Dick Askin said of the award.

In key station categories, there are no nominations — which means any and all stations can vie for the Emmy. Stations in the running for the 35-minutes-or-less newscast Emmy include KCBS, Tribune-owned KTLA, KNBC, Fox’s KCOP and Spanish-lingo outlets KMEX, KVEA, KWHY and KAZA. In the hourlong news category, KCBS is up against KNBC, KTTV, KCAL and KTLA.

ABC-owned KABC, as usual, declined to participate in the Emmy contest.

Other stations with multiple noms include KNBC (11), KMEX (nine), the combined KCBS/KCAL team (seven), KTLA (seven), embattled Orange County PBS outlet KOCE (four), KABC (two, via employees who sent in their own noms), KAZA (two), Hollywood PBS outlet KCET (two), and the combined forces of NBC’s local Spanish outlets KVEA and KWHY (two).

Peer group panels in Boston, Chicago, Florida, New York and Seattle determined this year’s nominees. Winners will be announced at ATAS’ North Hollywood headquarters Aug. 28.
