The NY1 editorial team won 11 New York Emmy Awards Saturday night.
"On Stage" hosted by Frank DiLella was victorious in several categories, including one recognizing their special on the reopening of Broadway after the COVID-19 pandemic. "On Stage" was named the best magazine program, as well.
"When Broadway shut down on March 12 of 2020, NY1, Spectrum News made a commitment to tell the stories of this incredible community, the beating heartbeat of New York City, and that is what we did. We were there the day it opened," DiLella said at Saturday night's awards ceremony. "Thank you so much."
