YouTube Founders, Once TV Pariahs, To Get Emmys For Lifetime Achievement

Chad Hurley and Steven Shih Chen, two former PayPal colleagues who co-founded YouTube in 2005, were once so reviled in traditional-media circles that their company elicited a billion-dollar lawsuit by Viacom.

Today, they were named as recipients of Emmy Awards for Lifetime Achievement.

The entrepreneurs, who founded the company with Jawed Karim, will collect their statuettes at next month’s Nab Show. The annual confab has traditionally centered on broadcast television but increasingly showcases technology, drawing a crowd of attendees whose size is exceeded only by CES.

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences said Hurley and Chen will be honored at the 70th annual Technology & Engineering Emmys in Las Vegas.
