MSG earns 57 New York Emmy award noms
The New York Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) has announced that MSG earned 57 New York Emmy Award nominations, more than any other New York television network or station for the fifth consecutive year. MSG Networks, which includes MSG, MSG+ and MSG.com, totaled 67 nominations, including nine for MSG+ and one for MSG.com.

The New York Emmy Awards recognize television and advanced media programs that were produced for telecast in New York state and northern New Jersey, and aired between September 1, 2010 and August 31, 2011.

“We are very proud that MSG has been recognized with the most New York Emmy nominations for the fifth year in a row,” said Michael Bair, president, MSG Media. “The 67 total nominations for MSG Networks, across a number of diverse categories, is a great achievement and reinforces that our programming is a favorite among viewers. We are thrilled to share this recognition with our distribution partners and advertising sponsors, and would like to congratulate all MSG employees for their commitment to being the best in the business.”

“We are honored that the New York Chapter of the NATAS has acknowledged MSG Networks’ exceptional live sports production, original programming, promotions, on-air talent and online content, and the credit for this success goes to our talented and dedicated employees,” said Dan Ronayne, executive vice president and general manager, MSG Networks. “We are devoted to bringing viewers the very best in live event coverage and original sports and entertainment programming, and the 67 nominations across MSG, MSG+ and MSG.com are a testament to that mission.”

MSG Networks’ New York Emmy nominations covered 37 different categories, ranging from sports and entertainment programming, to editing, writing, directing and promotion. In the highly sought-after Live Sports Event: Program/Special and Live Sports Event: Series categories, MSG and MSG+ received five of the nine nomination spots: two for the 2010-11 New York Knicks game telecasts, including Friday Night Knicks, which was nominated three times; one for the 2010-11 New Jersey Devils game telecasts; and one each for the boxing programs, Battle of the Badges and Golden Gloves.

All four of MSG Network’s professional basketball and hockey team telecasts in the New York City area earned Emmy nominations: the Knicks with 12, the Rangers and Devils with four each, and the Islanders with two.

MSG Networks’ original programs garnered a total of 35 nominations in a variety of categories, including five nominations for The Game 365, MSG’s Vault and Summer of ‘86; four nominations for Knicks Poetry Slam; three nominations for MSG ProFiles; and a total of four nominations for the new programs 10 to One and Who Wore It Best?

In the On-Camera Talent categories, MSG Networks collected seven combined nominations: Al Trautwig, Stan Fischler and Ron Duguay for MSG, and Mike “Doc” Emrick, Howie Rose, and Steve Cangialosi, who was nominated twice, for MSG+. Trautwig was also nominated twice in the Writer: Sports category.

MSG’s second-screen initiative, MSGxtra.com, which is an extension of MSG.com and was launched in 2011, was nominated in the Interactive category.

Award winners will be announced on Sunday, April 1, 2012 at the 55th annual New York Emmy Awards ceremony to be held at The Marriott Marquis in Times Square.
