NEW YORK – No need to change the channel: The Grammys will be on the CBS network for the next 10 years.
The Recording Academy announced Tuesday that it had reached a new deal to keep the awards show on the network, where the Grammys have aired since 1973. The network will also broadcast the now annual nominations concert special, which this year will air Nov. 30.
The Grammys are set for Feb. 12, 2012.
Both events will air live from Los Angeles.
This year’s Grammy telecast in February featured stars like Eminem and Lady Antebellum. It drew the show’s biggest TV audience in 10 years, with 26.6 million viewers.
