CBS dominates Emmys’ financial news noms

Eye nabs 13 nods, CNBC picks up only one

NEW YORK — Nominations for the second annual Emmy Awards for business and financial reporting were announced Tuesday, even as financial news nets face a downturn.

CNBC picked up only one nomination, while CBS stole the show, nabbing 13.

Awards will be presented Dec. 2 at the Rainbow Room in Gotham. Veteran TV host Louis Rukeyser, who won’t be returning to his Friday night show on CNBC because of illness, will receive the first lifetime achievement award for business and financial reporting.

New Emmy program is administered by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Word of Tuesday’s nominations came less than a week after CNN announced that it is shuttering CNNfn in mid-December after nearly a decade.

CNBC and CNNfn were launched during the dot-com boom of the 1990s; audience interest has waned with the economic downturn.

At the same time, Fox News Channel is considering a spinoff financial news net. Fox News financial host Neal Cavuto boasts the most popular business shows on cable.

A total of 31 noms in eight categories were announced by NATAS.

NBC came in second with eight. PBS picked up five and CNN two. ABC and Discovery Times each got one.
