Los Angeles Local Emmy Noms: A Good Day For Steve Edwards
Steve Edwards has graced Los Angeles airwaves for decades, hosting everything from "2 On The Town" to KABC's "A.M. Los Angeles." He's hosted KTTV/Fox 11's "Good Day L.A." now for 15 years. (Wow.)
Now Edwards (seen above doing the weather for KNXT/Channel 2 in 1978) is about to receive this year's L.A. Area Governors Award at the L.A. Area Emmys.
Edwards joins a group of past honorees that include Jess Marlow, Kelly Lange, Jerry Dunphy, Larry McCormick and Dr. George Fischbeck.
Meanwhile, KNBC/Channel 4 leads this year's Local L.A. Emmy nomincations, with 15 nods, followed by KTLA/Channel 5. KTLA was among the stations to already land an Emmy this week, as its coverage of the death of Michael Jackson last year was the only nominee in the "live coverage of an unscheduled news event" category.
The L.A. Area Emmys take place on July 31.
