NEW YORK, May 24 (UPI) -- The 39th annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards ceremony in Beverly Hills, Calif., is to air on the HLN Television Network, organizers said.

The event, honoring the best in daytime television, is to take place June 23 at the Beverly Hilton.

"Working with the show's producer, Gabriel Gornell of LocoDistro, we are preparing a new, fresh, creative show that will honor all the genres that make daytime television part of our daily lives. These shows include daytime dramas, children's and animation programming, game shows, courtroom, talk, culinary and the morning shows," Malachy Wienges, chairman of NATAS, said in a statement Thursday.

"HLN is thrilled to work with NATAS to celebrate some of television's best programs and performances," said Scot Safon, HLN's executive vice president and general manager. "Every day, we focus on the news and information people talk about, and that has included extensive coverage of the Daytime Emmys in the past. This year, we're very excited to also be carrying the event itself."
