News Director Pam Chen and Assistant News Director Dan Rasmussen were on hand to accept three more Emmys for anchor and reporter David Ono.

There was a tie in one of the categories, so there were two winners and they both went to Ono. He tied himself and won two Emmys in the process.

Entertainment guru George Pennacchio and editor Cheryl Diano also won an Emmy for their coverage of Betty White's death.
