The Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony has a new home at the CW network.
The CW’s entertainment president, Dawn Ostroff, said Wednesday the show draws a “core female following” similar to that of the network and will provide a promotional platform for the CW’s fall schedule.
The Aug. 30 broadcast will mark the first time the ceremony won’t air on one of the major three networks. In the last four years, it had shifted between CBS and ABC.
Nominations for the 36th annual ceremony will be announced on May 14. Categories include best talk shows and dramas. “Sesame Street” will receive a lifetime achievement award for four decades of educating and entertaining children.
