Stephanie Edwards honored with Emmy Award
NORTH HOLLYWOOD — Longtime Rose Parade TV host Stephanie Edwards was honored with the Governors Award during the 68th Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards on Saturday. She and Bob Eubanks hosted the Rose Parade starting in 1982, and retired this year.
A former actress, Edwards blossomed as an television personality in the 1970s. She received a Daytime Emmy nomination in 1979 for her work on Everyday. She also worked on morning news programs such as AM America and Good Morning America on ABC.
Known for their on-air chemistry, Edwards and Eubanks covered the Rose Parade until 2006. Station management demoted Edwards to coverage from the street that year, although she was still billed as a co-host. She returned to Eubank’s side in 2009, with no hard feelings.
“Being in that rainstorm was the best thing that happened to my career,” Edwards told the LA Times last year.
“Mine too,” Eubanks joked.
Unlike the more-high profile Emmy Awards in September, the Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards limits itself to local stations and personalities. Other winners included the Burbank Channel, the city’s government information channel. It won Best Information Segment for its “State-of-the-City” video, “Drawing Power of Burbank”.
