International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences president and CEO Bruce Paisner says Regis Philbin brings “great credibility” to the 40th annual event, set for November 19 in New York. Philbin stepped away as co-host of Live With Regis And Kelly in November 2011 and is touring the country with the paperback edition of his book How I Got This Way. The International Academy will present Emmys in nine categories. Alan Alda and Norman Lear will be honored with special Founders Awards. Glee creator Ryan Murphy will receive the 2012 International Emmy Founders Award and Korean Broadcasting System President and CEO Kim In-Kyu, will receive the International Emmy Directorate Award.
