Retired KNBC anchor Paul Moyer and its departing news director, Bob Long, went out with an Emmy bang.

Moyer’s final year at the helm of the NBC-owned station’s 5 and 11 p.m. newscasts — which he co-anchored with Colleen Williams, who remains with the outlet — netted KNBC a pair of wins Saturday night at the 61st annual Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards.

KNBC led the total Emmy tally (as it had the previous two years), netting eight. Fox-owned KTTV was next with seven, followed by PBS outfit KCET with six.

The 5 p.m. newscast won the Emmy for daily news over 35 minutes, while the station’s 11 p.m. telecast won the Emmy for news under 35 minutes. The dual wins were a sweet farewell for Long, who announced last week that he would depart the station next month to take a teaching job in Turkey.
