NOMINATIONS FOR THE 7th ANNUAL EMMY® AWARDS
 FOR BUSINESS & FINANCIAL REPORTING ANNOUNCED

Nominations for 
Promotional Announcements also Announced

Nightly Business Report Anchor
Paul Kangas and Founder Linda O’Bryon 

to Receive Lifetime Achievement Awards

New York – November 5, 2009– The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) today announced the nominees for the 7th Annual Emmy® Awards for Business & Financial Reporting. In addition, the nominations for Emmy Awards for Promotional Announcements were also announced. The awards will be presented at a luncheon (11:30 reception, 12:00 noon luncheon) on Monday, December 7th at Fordham University’s Lincoln Center campus in New York City.

“In these times of almost unprecedented financial uncertainty, good business reporting is more important than ever,” said Bill Small, Chairman of the News & Documentary Emmy Awards. “This year’s nominees are the best of an excellent selection of submissions, and show how hard broadcast journalists have worked to keep viewers informed about the economic events that affect their lives. In addition, we are pleased to be honoring an important area of our craft by presenting two Emmy Awards for outstanding promotional announcements.”

Lifetime Achievement Awards for Business and Financial Reporting will be presented to Paul Kangas, Anchor and Financial Commentator for PBS’ Nightly Business Report, and Linda O’Bryon, the founder of the pioneering business news broadcast and now Chief Content Officer of Northern California Public Broadcasting. Linda O’Bryon, spearheaded the creation of Nightly Business Report in 1979. Under her stewardship, NBR became the most-watched evening business news program, distributed nationally by PBS on more than 250 stations. Dubbed “the Walter Cronkite of business broadcasting,” longtime anchor and financial commentator Paul Kangas has been equally responsible for NBR’s success. Kangas recently announced that he will leave his anchor position at the end of 2009, though he plans to stay active in the financial world.

The Emmy Awards for Business & Financial Reporting recognize outstanding achievement in business & financial reporting from July 1, 2008 thru June 30, 2009. The two Promotional Announcement categories recognize outstanding promotional announcements in News & Documentary programming aired in 2008.

A list of nominees for the 7th Annual Emmy Awards for Business & Financial Reporting is also available on the NATAS website, www.emmyonline.tv.
