Clips featuring the three newsmen at work will illustrate the manner in which they influenced and impacted viewers as they told their audiences what was happening in the news each night.

Michael J. Fox and Lisa Kudrow also have memories to share.

Presenters include Mischa Barton, Rachel Bilson, Halle Berry, Zack Braff, Jon Cryer, Geena Davis, Patrick Dempsey, Charles S. Dutton, Craig Ferguson, Matthew Fox, Adrian Grenier, Alyson Hannigan, Mariska Hargitay, Hugh Laurie, Jason Lee, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Debra Messing, Chris O'Donnell, William Petersen, Ellen Pompeo, Kyra Sedgwick, Charlie Sheen, Jimmy Smits, James Spader, Jon Stewart, Kiefer Sutherland, Quentin Tarantino and Sela Ward. The Black Eyed Peas and Earth, Wind & Fire and Kristen Bell, Gary Dourdan, Macy Gray, Megan Mullally, William Shatner, Donald Trump and Frederica von Stade will perform.

THE 57TH ANNUAL PRIMETIME EMMY AWARDS is being produced by Ken Ehrlich Productions and is presented by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Ken Ehrlich is the executive producer; Michael B. Seligman and Renato Basile are the producers; Danette Herman is the coordinating producer and executive in charge of talent. Bruce Gowers will direct.
