EMMY® Competition 2014
Congratulations to all our nominees and 2014 Emmy Award Recipients!
The 28th annual Heartland Regional Emmy® Awards and Silver Circle presentations were held Saturday, July 12, at the Seawell Grand Ballroom at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts and at the Bud Wilkinson Event Center at the Jim Thorpe Museum in Oklahoma City. Over 600 professionals from the chapter’s 5-state region gathered to celebrate the presentation of 104 Emmy® awards in more than 100 areas of excellence and in student achievement. Kicking off the event was the chapter’s first Red Carpet Arrival, hosted by award-winning Arts and Entertainment journalist Eden Lane.
The Heartland Chapter inducted 5 new members into the prestigious Silver Circle, which recognizes 25 years of outstanding contribution to the television industry. This year’s inductees are: John Goheen, celebrated videojournalist and instructor; Anne Trujillo, News Anchor with KMGH; Greg Moody, formerly Critic-at-Large for KCNC; Mike LeClaire, award-winning photographer at KMGH, and Ken Miller, EP with ROOT Sports Rocky Mountain.
The evening’s presentation was produced by YGHDTV in Denver, and made available via live stream to all NATAS chapters across the country.
