CNN US’ Lou Dobbs, Drew Griffin win Emmy Awards

MUMBAI: The National Television Academy in the US has awarded CNN US two Emmys.

The academy presented the awards for the best business and financial reporting in 2005 during its third annual ceremony held a couple of nights ago at Bloomberg’s New York City headquarters.

A Lifetime Achievement Emmy has been given to anchor Lou Dobbs.

This award recognised Dobbs for the creation of news shows Lou Dobbs Moneyline and Lou Dobbs Tonight. He also helped launch CNNfn and was also recognised for his coverage of some of the most important financial topics over the past quarter century, including jobs, immigration and the global economy. Last year Lou Dobbs Tonight won a business Emmy in the category of Outstanding Extended Coverage of a Business Story for Exporting America which deals with outsourcing.

Investigative correspondent Drew Griffin and producer Pia Malbran earned an Emmy for Outstanding Investigative Reporting of a Business News Story – Regularly Scheduled Newscast for their reports about fires allegedly caused by some Ford trucks.

In an early report, Griffin interviewed Earl Mohlis, an Iowa man who filed a wrongful death against Ford after his wife died in a fire allegedly caused by their Ford F-150 pickup truck. Griffin continued to investigate and report on the story of why Ford delayed recalling vehicles with a reportedly faulty cruise control device even after the National Highway Traffic Safety Association had launched 4 separate investigations and had more than 650 reports of Ford vehicles bursting into flames. Those follow-up reports aired on Paula Zahn Now.
