HLN Won’t Air The Daytime Emmy Awards



Don't expect to find the Daytime Emmy Awards on HLN this year. According to ABC Soaps in Depth, the cable news network made the decision early enough to allow the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) to find another home.  HLN's Vice-President and General Manager Albie Hecht told the magazine,


"I just want to put a pause on everything and figure out what we're doing before we make any commitments. Shows like [the Daytime Emmys] need commitments in advance to plan and I don't think we can make that commitment."
