UTVS wins three student Emmys
Thursday, September 30, 2010
The Stewart Hall display case will have to make room for three more awards won by student media as UTVS won three Upper Midwest Regional Emmy Student Production Awards last weekend.
Raquel Hellman, producer, accepted the award for the “UTVS News” crew for best college newscast.
Jon Otte and Whitney Thielman won the single story Emmy for “Schiefelbein Farms.”
Jordan Weinand was honored in best sports program/event for “Husky Mag.”
“When we were at the event and neither of us expected to win, we were just happy to be there,” said Theilman who is also the executive producer for “Triviaholix” UTVS popular game show.
The Upper Midwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences award ceremony was Sept. 25 at the Pantages Theater, Minneapolis.
“We worked really hard on the video and it felt good to get recognized for our hard work,” said Theilman.
UTVS is St. Cloud State’s student run television station, carried locally by Charter Communications on channel 21 and streamed live at utvs.com. “Husky Mag” is the UTVS sports news magazine covering Husky athletics.
“Jordan Austin and Joel Larson deserve a lot of credit for being producers on “Husky Mag” even though my name is on the award,” said Weinand, producer. “It’s a competitive category and it’s an honor to be recognized. The award is a testament to all of hard work put into the show by a number of students.”
The awards will be displayed in the east end of Stewart Hall near the television studios.
“We work really hard at UTVS and we try to put out the best products in order to represent ourselves and the university in a positive way,” said Theilman.
“For UTVS to be recognized, it’s a tribute to the amount of hands on experience that is available to students,” said Weinand. “But you can only get out as much as you put in.”
