MSG's 11 top NY Emmy list
A laurel and hearty handshake to all of the winners of this year's New York Emmy Awards. The complete list of winners - sports and otherwise - can be found here.
MSG led the list with 11 wins. MSG Varsity, YES and SNY scored six apiece.
Among them were Doc Emrick (play-by-play), Stan Fischler (reporter), Ray Lucas (analyst) and Bob Lorenz (anchor).
Stan, the Hockey Maven, first went to work for the Rangers as a publicist in 1954.
There are many other sports-related winners on the list, which dates back to the fall of 2009. Hence YES' victory for its coverage of the Yankees' World Series victory parade.
I recall appreciating YES' handling of that event, because it was geared to actual sports fans, as opposed to the cloying gushing of some of the news reporters on the local broadcast channels.
My Emmy nominations from back in my days on "Giants Online" got lost in the mail every year.
