Ray, who won the award after leaving SNY to battle his pain-killer addiction, posted this entry on his Facebook after he received the emotional news:
"Just found out that I WON THE EMMY for Best Sports Analyst in NY. WOW it is such a blessing to now have a clear head be pain killer free & have my physical issues healing so I can truly enjoy this amazing honor. My life is going in the right direction. Talking about sucking some snot, what an overwhelming experience."
