NEW YORK — Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and Atlanta ex-Mayor Andrew Young is being honored by the Emmy Awards for television work more than 50 years ago.

As a young minister living in New York, Young made frequent appearances on the CBS-TV show “Look Up and Live” from 1957 to 1960.

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences said Wednesday that Young was one of the first black Americans with a regular television presence. Currently, he hosts the syndicated show “Andrew Young Presents.”

The academy said it is giving Young an award for lifetime achievement on Friday, presented by former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw. The Emmys give out this award irregularly, with Walt Disney Co. chief Robert Iger the most recent recipient in 2005.
