Former TV academy president Hank Rieger dies
March 08, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Family members say the former president of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has died in Oceanside, Calif.

Henry “Hank” Rieger was 95. He died on Wednesday.

In his 40 years with the TV academy, Rieger also served as president of the organization’s Hollywood chapter and editor and publisher of Emmy magazine.

Before joining the TV academy, Rieger worked for United Press International and in publicity for NBC, promoting such series as “Bonanza,” “Star Trek” and “Sanford and Son.” He later started his own publicity firm, which counted ESPN among its clients.

In 1994, Rieger was honored with the TV academy’s Syd Cassyd Award for his long and distinguished service to the organization.

Rieger’s wife of 65 years, Deborah, died last year.
