LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Daytime Emmy Awards have found a new home at cable news channel HLN.

The channel said Thursday it will air the 39th annual awards ceremony live from Beverly Hills on June 23.

The awards, which aired on CBS for the past two years, will move from broadcast to cable for the first time. The ceremony struggled to find a network home as soap operas, once daytime's big draw, slipped in popularity and their numbers dwindled.

In a statement, HLN executive Scot Safon said the news channel has covered the Daytime Emmys in the past and, he said, is "excited to also be carrying the event itself."

Last year's Daytime Emmy winners include "The Dr. Oz Show," ''The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Bold & The Beautiful."
