NEW YORK –
The Daytime Emmys (search) are saying goodbye to New York and moving cross-country to L.A.
The National TV Academy (search), which oversees the awards show, hopes a move to Tinseltown will jump-start the broadcast, which notched record-low ratings last spring.
The show will air live on ABC from the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood — marking the first time in the show's history that it's aired anywhere but New York.
The Kodak Theatre is the same venue from which the Oscars have aired since the theatre opened in 2001.
And, in another first, the Daytime Emmy nominees will be announced live on ABC's "The View" by show hosts Barbara Walters, Meredith Vieira, Star Jones, Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
The Daytime Emmys encompass soap operas, game shows and daytime talk shows.
Last year's big winner was "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," (search) which won for Best Talk Show, while DeGeneres snared an Emmy as Best Talk Show Host.
