Student media win national awards
Monday, January 25, 2010
Husky Productions skated off with a first-place win for “Best Live Game or Live Event” during the first Global Media Awards for College Sports. The award was for the broadcast of the Wisconsin vs. St. Cloud State contest on Nov. 11, 2008, and celebrates excellence across the spectrum of college sports video production, including work by colleges and universities, national and regional sports networks and technology innovators. A panel of judges selected five Husky Production entries for nomination. Other nominees included ESPN, CBS Sports, Ball State University, Baylor University, Ohio State and the University of Miami, Fla. Brian Stanley ’93, White Bear Lake, Robert Hudson ’03, Minneapolis, and Derrick Silvestri ’06, Chisholm, were part of the Husky production team.
UTVS wins another regional Emmy. AV FUZZ, an extreme sports and music videos show produced at St. Cloud State’s television station UTVS, took first place for best college non-news production at the Midwest Regional Emmy Awards in September. Bruce Meyers, Prior Lake, and Jon Otte, St. Cloud, accepted the award. Eight to 10 episodes of student-produced AV FUZZ are produced each semester. “It was a bit of a change having to be in the spotlight for once,” Otte said. “Usually we are the ones asking the questions.”
