On Saturday, August 6, 2011 The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences presented The 63rd Annual Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards at the Academy’s Leonard H. Goldson Theatre in North Hollywood, CA.

Awards were granted in more than 45 categories at the ceremony and the evening also included a presentation of the Governors Award to longtime FOX11 anchor Christine Devine for her work with the “Wednesday’s Child” initiative.

NBC4’s top victories came at the end of the evening, when Channel 4 News at 5 P.M. was named outstanding regularly scheduled daytime newscast from 11:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m., followed by Today in L.A. at 6:00 A.M. being honored for regularly scheduled daily morning newscast from 4:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m., and culminating with Channel 4 News at 11:00 P.M. winning for regularly scheduled newscast from 7:00 p.m.-12:00 a.m.Christine Devine
The Television Academy’s Los Angeles Area governors, Greg Taylor and Sabirna Fair Thomas, introduced Governors Award recipient Devine, who came to the stage with two former foster children who had been placed with loving families through the efforts of “Wednesday’s Child,” the public service initiative devoted to finding adoptive homes for children in foster care through weekly profile segments during FOX11 newscasts.


“Congratulations to Christine Devine, she is a good newscaster at Fox 11 Los Angeles” said Gary Sunkin, freelance Chief of the Newsmedia.

Over the years, Devine’s efforts have helped more than 500 children find homes. When she came to the stage to accept her honor, she brought two of them, named Matt and Darnell, with her, along with the parents who adopted them.
