KUED received eight Emmy Awards at the 35th Annual Rocky Mountain Emmy Awards in Phoenix, Arizona.
“Not only is this evidence of the high regard with which our peers in the industry hold our work, it is another example of our outstanding production department and their commitment to excellence and in being, 'Utah's Best Storyteller,'" says KUED General Manager Michael A. Dunn. “This accomplishment is even more impressive given the shrinking budgets, shortened timelines and enormous workload under which these craftspeople and artisans now work.“
KUED Senior Producer John Howe’s work was honored with four Emmys: Five Rivers Five Voices, for Environment Program/Special, Photographer and Writer; and Horses of the West: America’s Love Story for Director.
Nancy Green, Joe Prokop and Cheryl Niederhauser’s work on Utah’s Freedom Riders was honored in the Historical Documentary category. Carol Dalrymple’s Climb for Life: A Legacy took the award for Public/Current/Community Affairs Program/Special. William Montoya, Bill Gordon and Kevin Sweet received an Emmy for Audio for Utah Vietnam War Stories: Escalation. Navigating Freedom, produced for KUED by students from Spy Hop, was honored in the Student Long Form category.
“These awards cover a wide spectrum of subject areas such as history, public affairs and the environment,” says Dunn. “Of similar note, our team's talents were recognized in specialty skill areas such as audio design, writing and photography. And as further evidence of our relevance to education and our vital role in developing the next generation of filmmakers, the student filmmakers KUED mentored on Navigating Freedom were honored for their work.”
