The Academy is very pleased to honor his many contributions to the art and science of international television," said Academy president and president of Hearst Entertainment Bruce Paisner.

The International Emmy Founders Award will be given to MTV International.

"The Academy will be honored to present the 2004 International Emmy Founders Award to MTV International for revolutionizing music on television and supporting the fight against HIV/AIDS around the world. We are also honored that Bill Roedy will accept the award as we recognize his many contributions to both MTV and to the HIV/AIDS cause," said Paisner.

The Ted Cott Award will be presented to Len Mauger. The award is named after one of the founders of the Academy and is given to Board Members who have contributed significantly to the Academy. Previous winners of this award include, among others, Renato Pachetti, Roberto Marinho and Ralph Baruch.

Mauger is presently associated with the Nine Network Australia, a freeman of the City of London and a member of the Order of Australia. He was a consultant at Nine Network International in Australia from 1990-2002 after serving as its managing director from 1973 - 1990.

"We honor Len's commitment to global broadcasting through his work at Channel Nine and with the Academy. Over the years, Len has advanced the Academy's goals of sharing ideas, skills and programs among world's television industry. He is a good friend, mentor, and a professional colleague to many of us," said Academy chairman Fred Cohen.
