Spanish-Language Stations Dominate at L.A.-Area Emmy Awards

Spanish-language broadcast stations led the pack at the 67th annual Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards on Saturday night.

Spanish-language stations KMEX and KVEA cleaned up at the award show with nine and seven wins, respectively, more than any of the English-language news channels.

KMEX picked up many of the night’s top awards, including for Outstanding Editor, Outstanding Director, Outstanding Sports Reporting and Investigative Reporting. Meanwhile, KVEA’s Jaime Sanchez was honored with the Best Editor award, and the station also earned top honors for Sports Series and its regular evening newscast.

The dominance of Spanish-language stations at the Emmys underscores California’s demographic shift; as of July 1, Latinos make up a majority of the population in the state.

Among other winners, KTLA5 took home five awards, KCAL 9 earned four, CBS2 and NBC4 each won three and ABC7 and KCET won two a piece.

On the sports-broadcast front, Time Warner Cable’s SportsNet L.A. won six awards, three for its coverage of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The wins are particularly ironic because most Dodger fans could not watch the baseball games due to contract disputes.

Check out the complete list of winners below, courtesy of Deadline.
