The program will be presented live to a national and global audience from the ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, June 22.

Overseeing this year's event is Executive Producer Spike Jones, Jr., who expressed his excitement over this year’s talent and new categories. "It's a double great evening," said Jones. "I'm thrilled to be producing the Daytime Emmys with the hilarious Kathy Griffin hosting. Plus I get to see the debut of the Entertainment News category Award. Access Hollywood going up against Extra? Entertainment Tonight versus E! News - with TMZ thrown in as a wild card. It's going to be epic."

This is the first time in its history that the prestigious organization will be utilizing streaming technology, provided by Livestream LLC, to broadcast the awards show, and it does so in the hopes that audiences around the world will be able to engage in an event which celebrates
programs that are known internationally and boast a global fan base.

"The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is, this year for the first time, servicing the daytime television community within the context of a modern, multi-screen viewing environment. We are promoting the extraordinary product and talent available on daytime to the largest possible global audience, ensuring that everyone has access to the Daytime Emmys," said Malachy G. Wienges, Chairman of The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

"Our industry cannot afford the nostalgia of a conventional TV-only broadcast. I trust that by next year, a progressive, forward thinking network will air the Daytime Emmys as a companion to our successful digital, social and mobile strategy."

The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards will be available for viewing live at www.daytimeemmys.net beginning at 5:00pm PDT / 8:00pm EDT on June 22. Emmy® Awards will be handed out for twenty-five categories, including several new ones announced this year. The official red carpet pre-show will begin on the site at 3 p.m. PT/6 p.m. ET.

NATAS will also be connecting with viewers through their social media platforms, enlisting the
help of several social media ambassadors to capture special moments on-site and share them via
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine and YouTube.

"As the Daytime Emmys embark on this exciting new social and digital strategy, we take great joy in welcoming Brittany Furlan, Jessica Harlow, Meghan Rosette, and Lauren Elizabeth into the Emmy family," stated Paul Colichman, Executive Producer of the Red Carpet and Social Media. "These official red carpet and social media hosts not only bring millions of new millennial fans, but they represent the style, warmth and humor of the show."

The Daytime Emmy® Awards recognize outstanding achievement in all fields of daytime television production and are presented to individuals and programs broadcast from 2 a.m. – 6 p.m. during the 2013 calendar year.
