LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — "Let's Make A Deal" host Wayne Brady -- as well as a legion of young soap stars --will present at the 40th annual Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday, June 16.
The awards will air live on HLN from the Beverly Hilton Hotel (8-10 p.m. PT)
It was also announced that actor Corbin Bernsen and longtime "The Young and the Restless" star Jess Walton (Jill) will introduce the "In Memoriam" segment. Bernsen's mother and Walton's co-star, Jeanne Cooper, died earlier this month at age 84.
Presenters from "Y&R" will also include Bryton James (Devon), Max Ehrich (Fenmore) and Hunter King (Summer).
Other daytime luminaries -- including Steve Harvey, Alex Trebek, Todd Newton and new talk show hosts Bethenny Frankel and Kris Jenner -- were also named as presenters.
Brady will present a lifetime achievement award to original "Let's Make A Deal" host Monty Hall. "Hot In Cleveland" star Betty White -- who hosted and appeared on a variety of game shows, as well as being married to "Password" host Allen Ludden -- will present another lifetime achievement award, posthumously, to the late game show producer Bob Stewart who died in 2012 at 91.
This year's theme is "Daytime: Past, Present And Future."
HLN also said viewer participation would play a part in this year's show.
