Connecticut Public Television (CPTV) Wins Three Emmy Awards


HARTFORD, Conn. (June 10, 2014) – Connecticut Public Television (CPTV) is pleased to announce that it recently won three Regional Emmy Awards from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) Boston/New England Chapter for work produced during the 2013 television season. The awards were presented to CPTV at the 37th Boston/New England Emmy Awards Ceremony on Saturday, June 7 at the Boston Marriott Copley Place.

 

The CPTV Original documentary The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp: A Different Kind of
Healing
won in the Outstanding Health/Science Program category. The program was produced, written and directed by Sara Conner and edited by Arnie Harchik, with photography by Mike Dunphy and motion graphics by Sam Hockaday. Larry Roeming was also honored in the Outstanding Audio category for his work on The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp: A Different Kind of Healing.

In addition, co-writers Bailey Pryor, Emily Bernhard and Maury Klein were honored for their work on the  CPTV National Presentation Railroad Man: The Life and Legend of Jay Gould, a production of Telemark Films, LLC.

“I am so proud of everyone for their wonderful work,” said Jerry Franklin, president and CEO of the Connecticut Public Broadcasting Network (CPBN), parent company of CPTV. “We at CPTV have always striven to tell interesting, important stories on our air, and programs like The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp: A Different Kind of Healing and Railroad Man: The Life and Legend of Jay Gould are premier examples of that effort.”

Since 1989, CPTV Original productions have earned 101 Regional Emmy Awards and 410 Regional Emmy Award nominations.

In addition to these awards, the NATAS Boston/New England Chapter recently recognized CPBN’s Education Department – which includes the CPBN Media Lab, a college internship program, along with the CPBN Learning Lab, home of the Journalism & Media Academy Magnet School satellite campus and the Institute for Advanced Media (IAM) – with three student awards and four nominations in the 2014 College/University division and one win and one honorable mention in the 2014 High School division. All of the awards were given for work created in 2013.

At the June 7 awards ceremony, the students honored in the College/University division were recognized for their achievement. Students honored in the High School division will be recognized at a separate ceremony on June 18 at The Boston Globe.

“I am particularly proud of what our Education Department students have accomplished,” said Franklin. “NATAS’ recognition of their great work is a testament to the skills they’ve developed here and to the fact that they are truly coming into their own as the next generation of top-notch media professionals.”
