Hosts chosen for Prism Awards

Nancy O'Dell, Victoria Recano set for Sept. 27 simulcast

Nancy O'Dell of "Access Hollywood" and Victoria Recano of "The Insider" will co-host a Sept. 27 telecast of the 12th annual Prism Awards, which for the first time will be simulcast over several TV channels.

The Prism Awards were presented in several categories in April, and O'Dell and Recano will preside over a telecast of highlights from that program. The FX cable network -- longtime partner on the program with the Entertainment Industries Council -- will air the awards along with several digital TV channels.

Those include Lifetime Real Women, Fox Reality, National Geographic, ReelzChannel, Retirement Living and Starfish. The Prism Awards honor actors, directors, writers and producers whose work in film and TV "accurately portrays mental illness and substance abuse."
