New York, NY, September 11, 2002 - PBS, with 14 Emmys, led the way at the 23rd Annual News and Documentary Emmy Awards last night. The awards ceremony was presented by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York.

NOVA, one of television's most acclaimed series, was also a multiple winner, taking home two Emmys: one for "Life's Greatest Miracle" and one for "Bioterror."

The humorous, critically praised special THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE CHICKEN also received two awards, prompting Master of Ceremonies Garrick Utley to say, "It's a great night for the chicken!"
