CHICAGO — WGN Morning News sports anchor Pat Tomasulo has been selected to host the 57th annual Chicago/Midwest Emmy Awards November 7.
The event will be broadcast live from 7 to 9 p.m. on two Tribune Media stations: Chicago’s CLTV and Milwaukee’s WITI. WGN-TV is also owned by Tribune Media.
“I am extremely excited to host this year’s show,” Tomasulo said in statement. “As someone who’s never even been nominated for an Emmy (because I won’t have an intern put together my submission tape), this is the first time anyone has really cared if I attend. It feels nice. I look forward to some of you knowing who I am by the time the night is over, and possibly making me job offers. I am also excited for the free meal.”
Emmy nominations will be announced October 6.
