NBC4 won for best evening newscast, while KCAL9 won for best daytime newscast. KTLA5 and KVEA (Telemundo) won for best morning newscast.
Edwards is known for her longtime hosting duty of the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena. She co-hosted coverage of the parade with game-show host Bob Eubanks for many years until signing off on Jan. 1, 2016.
The former actress also appeared on “AM Los Angeles” with Ralph Story, and “AM America” on ABC — a national version of the local show and forerunner to the network’s popular “Good Morning America” program.
