Academy intends to reschedule the April event to a later date in 2020 when viable.

NEW YORK — The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) today released the following statement from Sports Emmy Award Executive Director, Justine Gubar:

“Today we made the difficult decision to postpone the 41st Annual Sports Emmy® Awards ceremony based on government guidance regarding events of 500 people or more during the continuing spread of the novel coronavirus.” 

“The event had been scheduled for April 28th in the Frederick P. Rose Hall at Jazz at Lincoln Center. We are committed to ensuring the health and safety of the public at this time. The entire sports world is experiencing severe disruption and making difficult decisions about how to best serve fans, athletes and business partners. We support the leagues and our broadcast partners in these challenging times and look forward to celebrating excellence in sports television in the future.”
