Los Angeles Area Emmy Nominations: Spectrum News 1 Leads The Field For First Time

The hyperlocal Spectrum News 1 leads the way with 23 nominations for the 74th annual Los Angeles Area Emmys, which the Television Academy announced today. KCET is next with 15, followed by ABC7 (14) and KTTV (11).

The hardware will be handed out during a ceremony on Saturday, July 23, at the Academy’s campus in L.A.’s NoHo Arts District.

The Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards honor locally produced programs in the categories of Crime and Social Issues, Culture and History, the Arts, Human Interest, Sports, the Environment, and Live and Breaking News Coverage. This is the first year that Spectrum News 1, which launched in 2018, has scored the most L.A. Area Emmy noms. The 24-hour, all-local-news outlet ran third last year with 19 noms, trailing KCET — which led the field each of the past two years — and Telemundo.

The list of nominees in all 35 categories is below; see the list of noms by network/platform here.
