Posted 12:00 PM | May 7, 2013

HBO collected six awards, the second most of any single network, at the 34th Annual Sports Emmy® Awards held in New York City. 'Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel' received two Sports Emmy Awards this year and has now been honored with 25 Sports Emmy Awards in the program's history. The show was honored with the award for Outstanding Edited Sports Series/Anthology and for it's feature "Steve Gleason: Tragic Hero," it won the award for Outstanding Long Feature.

The '24/7' reality franchise took home the trophy for Outstanding Editing for the fifth consecutive year. The 'Hard Knocks' franchise also captured a Sports Emmy for its series featuring the Miami Dolphins. The Outstanding Sports Documentary Emmy for the film 'Namath' marks the seventh time HBO has captured the award, and the fifth time in the past six years.

'Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel' is also being honored with its first ever Peabody award, in recognition of its enterprising coverage of stories in 2012. Among the stories noted by the selection committee were: fan-on-fan violence at major sporting events in the U.S.; painkiller abuse in NFL locker rooms; and the deadly hazing of a Florida A&M drum major, who was a member of the school's legendary marching band.  The announcement from the Peabody Awards Committee stated, "Gumbel's show continued to be one of TV's finest news magazines, period."
