PBS Wins Awards at News, Documentary Emmys

(Posted September 21, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

PBS took six awards at the annual news and documentary Emmys, and Associated Press Television News was honored for its coverage of the Beslan school siege in Russia.

ABC, NBC and CBS each won four Emmys. HBO won three, and the president of HBO's documentary division, Sheila Nevins, was given the Emmy's lifetime achievement award. Dan Rather of CBS News was also given a special tribute for his years as anchorman.

APTN was honored for the work of photographer Dimitri Kozlov, who gained a vantage point in an apartment across the school and was in position to get exclusive pictures when the deadly siege began.

The ceremony, held Monday in New York, will be broadcast by C-SPAN at a date to be determined.
