    RT news channel was nominated on Tuesday for an International Emmy award in the news category for its special coverage of the 70th UN General Assembly.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, which represents leading media from over 60 countries, will announce the winner in New York City on September 21.

    This is the fourth time that RT has been nominated. It was recognized by the US-based Academy in 2010 for reporting on US President Barack Obama’s first visit to Russia in 2009, on the Occupy Wall Street movement in 2012 and on the Guantanamo Bay hunger strikes in 2014.

    The other nominees in the news category are Qatar’s Al Jazeera English, Brazil’s TV Globo and UK’s Sky News. The two former media outlets are also vying for Emmys in the current affairs category alongside Germany’s ARD/NDR and UK’s ITN.

    RT is an international news network which broadcasts 24/7 in English, Spanish and Arabic. It was the first news channel to get a billion views on YouTube.
