NOMINATIONS FOR THE 6th ANNUAL EMMY AWARDS FOR BUSINESS & FINANCIAL REPORTING ANNOUNCED

David Schlesinger of Thomson Reuters to Receive Lifetime Achievement Award

Nominations for Promotional Announcements also Announced

New York – November 3, 2008– The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) today announced the nominees for the 6th Annual Emmy® Awards for Business & Financial Reporting. Nominations for two new Emmy Awards for promotional announcements were also announced. The awards will be presented on Tuesday, December 2 (11:30 reception, 12:00 noon luncheon) at the Rainbow Room in New York City.

In addition, this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Business and Financial Reporting will be presented to David Schlesinger, Editor-in-Chief of Reuters News at Thomson

Reuters “More than any other news organization, Reuters understands that that there is no sharp dividing line between business reporting, political reporting, and other kinds of news,” said Peter Price, President/CEO of  NATAS. “As Editor-in-Chief, David Schlesinger has preserved this venerable organization’s core journalistic values while enthusiastically embracing the possibilities and challenges of the digital age, and we are proud to honor him for this achievement.”

Established over 150 years ago, Reuters News is read by over a billion people each day in 19 languages. Reporting from bureaus all over the world, Reuters journalists and photographers provide comprehensive, market-moving coverage of world events to newspapers and broadcasters. As Editor-in-Chief, Mr. Schlesinger oversees all editorial operations and strategy. He joined the company as a correspondent in the Hong Kong bureau in 1987, and assumed his current position in 2007.

“Recent events have shown just how important good economic journalism is to Wall Street and Main Street alike,” said Bill Small, Chairman of the News & Documentary Emmy Awards. “Many of this year’s submissions examined the mortgage meltdown that precipitated the current global economic crisis. This year’s nominees represent the best of a very strong group of entries, and we are pleased to pay tribute to them. In addition, we are pleased to be honoring an important but often overlooked area of our craft by presenting two Emmys for outstanding promotional announcements.”

The Emmy Awards for Business & Financial Reporting recognize outstanding achievement in business & financial reporting telecast or webcast from July 1, 2007 thru June 30, 2008. The Emmy Awards for Promotional Announcements recognize outstanding promotional announcements in News & Documentary programming aired in 2007.

A list of nominees for the 6th Annual Emmy Awards for Business & Financial Reporting is also available on the NATAS website, www.emmyonline.tv.
