Regis Philbin, Steve Harvey, Marie Osmond, Craig Ferguson, Deidre Hall, Nancy O’Dell, Shemar Moore and Alex Trebek are among those who will read the teleprompter on Pop’s telecast, which has Tyra Banks set to host.
Also presenting are cast members from the four daytime soaps, including Daniel Goddard, Justin Hartley and Melissa Claire Egan of “The Young and The Restless,” Kirsten Storms and Ryan Paevey of “General Hospital,” Christopher Sean, Freddie Smith and Guy Wilson of “Days of Our Lives” and Jacob Young, Karla Mosley and Linsey Godfrey of “The Bold and the Beautiful.”
Additional presenters will be announced prior to the awards show.
The 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will recognize outstanding achievement in all fields of daytime television production and are presented to individuals and programs broadcast during the 2014 calendar year. This year’s Lifetime Achievement Award will honor Betty White.
The awards show will be executive produced by Michael Levitt of Michael Levitt Productions, with Gary Tellalian and Mike Rothman also serving as executive producers.
