Award season is in full swing! It culminates with the Oscars later this month. But not so fast. The New York Emmy Awards announced its nominations today.

MSG Network leads the pack with 67 nominations. WNBC has the most among over-the-air outlets with 58 nominations.

There are dozens of award categories and here’s a brief rundown…

WCBS’ Chris Wragge, a multiple winner, has been nominated for Best Evening Newscast (under 35 minutes). He was tapped for anchoring the East River helicopter crash in October, 2011. He also received three other nominations, including coverage of a sportscast/series for the Giants Road to Super Bowl 46. He is also a nominee for the prestigious Best Anchor.

Among those joining Wragge in that category are WABC weekend morning anchor Phil Lipof, Tom Llamas of WNBC, and Sukanya Krishnan from WPIX.

Stations Take to the Ground, Sky for Deadly Empire State Building Shooting

As a gunman opened fire in Midtown Manhattan this morning, TV stations were quick to break in with coverage. Our sister site, TVSpy reports, that none was quicker than WABC/Channel 7.

WABC hit the air at 9:16 a.m. with anchor Phil Lipof and chopper reporter Shannon Sohn. WCBS/Channel 2 went with wall-to-wall coverage four minutes later.

WABC did have an embarrassing moment at one point when a prankster called as a witness. “Howard Stern came in and took him,” the caller told Lipof.

At least two people, including the gunman, were killed.
