6 Emmy Nominations for IdahoPTV

April 15 2011 by Peter Morrill

-On Thursday evening, April 14, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, Northwest Chapter announced the 2011 Emmy Award Nominations at the Idaho Black History Museum in Boise. I’m very pleased to let you know that Idaho Public Television was honored with six nominations including for a second year in a row overall Station Excellence. The following are the nominees as announced by NATAS:

Station Excellence: Idaho Public Television • Peter Morrill, General Manager

Historic/Cultural - Program/Special: Capitol of Light • Idaho Public Television • Bruce Reichert, Executive Producer

Health/Science - Program/Special: Outdoor Idaho: Eating Local • Idaho Public Television • Thanh Tan, Producer/Writer

Public/Current/Community Affairs - Program/Special: Outdoor Idaho: Wilderness in the 21st Century • Idaho Public Television • Bruce Reichert, Executive Producer

Documentary - Historical: Outdoor Idaho: Wooden Boats, Wonderous Lakes • Idaho Public Television • John Crancer, Producer/Writer

Writer - Program: Joan Cartan-Hansen • Idaho Public Television

These honors are another indication of the deep and broad tradition of content creation at IdahoPTV. Although individuals are mentioned in the nominations, it obscures the fact that a team of exceedingly talented people actually are responsible for the overall quality of our projects.

The Station Excellence nomination is especially notable given the other six nominees are all Seattle and Portland  broadcasters. IdahoPTV was the only public television nominee from the northwest region including Washington, Oregon, Montana, Alaska and Idaho.

The Emmy Award winners will be announced on Saturday, June 11 in Seattle. We’ll keep you posted how we do!
