Haverhill's Tom Bergeron takes home first primetime Emmy

LOS ANGELES — Haverhill native Tom Bergeron took home his first prime-time Emmy last night, at the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, presented by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

He beat out Emmy favorite Betty White of "Betty White's Off Their Rockers," as well as "The Amazing Race's" Phil Keoghan, Ryan Seacrest of "American Idol" and "So You Think You Can Dance" host Cat Deeley.
