For the third year in a row, a news show produced by St. Cloud State students for the campus television station, UTVS, has taken a regional Emmy Award and qualified for national competition.

St. Cloud State mass communications students Tyler Bieber, senior, and Tim Frevert, sophomore, both from Plymouth; Brian Scott ’08, reporter at KIMT in Mason City, Iowa; and senior Gwen Siewert, Lake City, were on the production team responsible for the show that received the 2008 Upper Midwest College Emmy Award in October. “UTVS News” took the regional honor in competition with an entry from the University of St. Thomas and three entries from the University of Minnesota.

UTVS News also won 2006 and 2007 regional College Emmy Awards, going on to take the National College Emmy for student-produced news show in 2006.
