9/11 tribute run among Emmy nominees

Good luck to all at the New York Emmy Awards Sunday, including those in the many sports categories. Here is the entire list of nominations.

Among the nominees is a WCBS show - produced by Todd Ehrlich - on the Tunnel to Towers run, a fundraiser that honors one of the fallen firefighters of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, Stephen Siller.

Siller was off duty when he learned of the attack on the World Trade Center. Unable to get through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel by car, he strapped on his gear and ran through the tunnel to help his fellow firefighters.

The annual Tunnel to Towers retraces his path. It has raised more than $7 million since its inception for a variety of charitable causes, including funding for burn centers and orphans of 9/11 victims.
