The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences – Pacific Southwest Chapter is proud to announce that Harold Greene will serve as the emcee of the 40th Anniversary Emmy® Awards.

Greene is an award-winning journalist who covered the news in Southern California for over forty years.  He reported on the stories that shaped our lives, riots, earthquakes, wildfires, guns in schools, gangs, the homeless, illegal immigration, and all things political.

Greene did just about every job in the television news business very successfully, helping his stations attain high ratings.  He went from cameraman/street reporter to news writer, newscast producer, managing editor, news director and then co-anchored top rated newscasts in San Diego, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

Among his honors are seven Emmy Awards (with 15 Emmy Award nominations), ten Golden Mike Awards, three Edward R. Murrow awards, two national Iris Awards, and a Columbia School of Journalism Award.

Greene himself became part of a news story, when he was awarded his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1999.

He is an avid golfer, surfer, emcee and he serves as a Trustee on the Board of Directors of Catholic Charities of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
