NEW YORK, February 4, 2014 -- The YES Network was nominated for 46 New York Emmy Awards this morning, tied for the most Emmy nominations YES has ever received. The network also received 46 nominations in 2011. YES now has 346 Emmy nominations since its 2002 launch. YES' excellence was recognized across numerous categories, including live game production (both the Yankees and the Nets), features, specials, business and entertainment programming, on-air talent, promotions, crafts such as graphics and editing, and new media.

"We are humbled and honored by the sheer number of nominations, which is indicative of how the industry perceives the YES Network," said John J. Filippelli, President, Production and Programming, YES Network. "The fact that the 46 nominations span the nearly every applicable category speaks volumes about the talent, passion and dedication that our people bring to the job every day."
