    Previously Reported on April 14:

    With anticipation for the upcoming 36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, and all of the changes ahead, Jim Romanovich, ATI’s president of Worldwide Media and Entertainment, has released a bit more to help viewers understand some of changes for this year's awards show.

    First and foremost, now that we know it'll be broadcast on the CW Network on August 30, fans are wondering who the host will be. Though that information hasn't been released yet, Jim assures everyone that they are closing in on naming the host, yes there will only be one host, and they are looking at six people in particular.

    Speaking of the August date, which falls on a Sunday, unlike the normal June Friday night date that so many have been used to, Jim explains the reasons for the August date is to give everyone the time to prepare for the airing of the show, which had been undecided for a while. Aside from the fact that to air a June show, with new programming, would be quite the rush, the CW Network's new show season begins on August 30 - a time when viewers are looking forward to their favorite show seasons coming back into their homes, a time when the Daytime Emmy Awards wouldn't be interfering with any other award shows that are scheduled prior to that date. However, this doesn't mean that they won't change the Emmy schedule for the following years after having this year to test the waters, if you will.

    A true fan of Daytime, Jim is taking the next five weeks to visit all of the studios in order to meet those involved and see how the studios run things in an attempt to ensure that the Emmys go off without a hitch this year and are an enjoyable experience for everyone involved! will keep you posted on any further developments surrounding the biggest event in Daytime!

    I hope it's not Roise O'Donnel who hosts.
    I would love to see Drew Carey be the host with
    Shannen Doherty...What a couple.

    Have Genie Francis and Tony Geary ever hosted..THAT would be great to see.

    Yeah I agree. An actual SOAP couple!!

    Wouldn't it be a STRONG message to Corday over at DOOL to use D. Hogestyn and D. Hall as host?? I'd bet good money the folks would stand up and take notice then.... These two have a lot of years devoted to the soap world and they were treated horribly. At least this way the rest of would feel a lil vindicated for their treatment of these two....

    not rosie please. she's gone and thats good. she is an irritating personality for most of the world including my gay daughter. she's made an ass of herself one to many times and her time in the spotlight is OVER

    It should be interesting...since the CW is CBS sister that mean they can promote CBS soaps or they could promote their Network shows such as the cast of Gossip Girl, Supernatural or Tyra Banks to Host. So, a big NO the Genie and Tony...when ABC gets to produce the show then the promote all the ABC soapstars to their Heart's content.

    Posted by dd18always at Tuesday, May 05 2009 12:04 PM

    i think Luke (Van Hansis) and Noah (Jake Silbermann) from As The World Turns should be the host
