 RESPONDS TO ABC-TV ANNOUNCEMENT
 NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif., June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The following is a statement made today by Leo Chaloukian, president of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, in response to an announcement by ABC-TV about future plans to present "The American Television Awards":
 "The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Primetime Emmy Awards has been, is and always will be, the world's most prestigious and coveted recognition of excellence. There are 44 years of well-established history and tradition behind each Emmy award that can never be diminished by other forms of recognition. Emmys have special significance since nominations and wins are determined solely by professional peers who are active Academy members. It is not a popularity contest."
