Obama interview earns an Emmy Award
I am pleased to report that our interview from last year of President Barack Obama was awarded an Emmy from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences National Capital Chesapeake Bay Chapter. Our special report from NBC12 was honored in the Interview/Discussion Program Special Category.
There were a number of people who played a key role in the production of this now award-winning television program.
David Brakke, NBC12’s former Operations Manager served as a photographer/producer and was there with me at the White House on the day of the interview.
Dwight Nixon, NBC12 photographer, shot the interview with Governor Bob McDonnell and edited the final project.
Matthew Harris, NBC12’s former 11pm producer, now with WPTV in West Palm Beach, served as the program’s producer.
There were also countless behind the scenes production and newsroom staffers who helped to get the show on the air. Although I was the one who accepted the trophy, they all share in this significant award.
It occurred to me in the rush of the nomination process that the special never appeared in its entirely on the internet. So here it is now. Thanks once again for everyone who helped to make this career dream come true!
