The Fox O&O is followed by KNBC, which nabbed 16 nominations, and KCET, which earned 15. KCBS/KCAL and Fox Sports Net West round out the top five with 12 and 10 noms, respectively.

Academy of Television Arts & Sciences chairman Dick Askin also said that Telemundo KVEA's "Mejorando Su Vida" (Improving Your Life) has been tapped to receive the Los Angeles Area Governors Award, which honors "broadcasting achievement in the Los Angeles market."

"KVEA 52 is doing a tremendous job providing important information and services to the Latino community through 'Mejorando Su Vida, ' " Askin said. "We are very pleased that the academy's board of governors voted to bestow this honor on a news outlet that educates and effects positive change in the community."

A total of 139 nominations in 46 categories were announced for the Los Angeles Area Emmys. In the regularly scheduled daily news competition, the contenders for best daytime newscast are KVEA, KCBS, KTTV, KCAL, KTLA, KMEX and KNBC.
