Winners of the 38th Annual News and Documentary Emmy Awards were announced Thursday night by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences at a ceremony in New York City. Legendary anchor Charles Osgood was honored for his almost 50 years in radio and television, including his many years hosting, CBS Sunday Morning. In addition, there was a special tribute honoring the 50th anniversary of the CBS’s 60 Minutes.
PBS and CBS led the winners at the 36th annual News and Documentary Awards, held Monday night at Lincoln Center. But lifetime achievement honoree Ted Turner stole the show with an emotional acceptance speech that recounted his “firing” in 2001 from the company he founded.
