From NPT Media Update:
We’re proud to report that our NPT Reports: Children’s Health Crisis series picked up two Emmy Awards – two of four in total that NPT productions won – when the 25th Annual Midsouth Regional Emmy® Awards were announced last night at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in downtown Nashville. Our “Overview” episode took home the Emmy in the DOCUMENTARY/TOPICAL category, handing statues to writer/director and associate producer Mary Makley, executive producer Beth Curley and videographer/editor Matthew Emigh. The “Infant Mortality” episode was tops in the PUBLIC AFFAIRS category, with Emmys being handed to writer and director Will Pedigo, Makley, Curley and editor Suzy Hence.
Also winning awards were Beautiful Tennessee: Parks & Preservation in the DOCUMENTARY/CULTURAL category, which gave writer, director and producer Ed Jones a statue to take home, and Kyle Jones, who drummed up a statue for best MUSIC COMPOSER/ARRANGER for his work on Next Door Neighbors: Bhutanese.
We’d also like to congratulate those productions that aired on NPT and took home awards. Among them were Janet’s Planet Health Interstitials in the CHILDREN’S PROGRAM category (Janet Ivey & John Hussey for Janet’s Planet); Tennessee’s Wildside in the MAGAZINE SERIES category (Steve Hall, Ken Tucker, Barry Cross and Doug Jackson for The Renaissance Center); and Creative License in the ARTS category( David Van Hooser, Steve Hall, Ken Tucker and Barry Cross for The Renaissance Center/TRCMedia/Tennessee Arts Commission).
Congrats to all the winners, especially our friends in the Nashville media market. Special thanks to our viewers and supporters, who make it all possible.
