Arizona Public Media Emmy Nominations

The Rocky Mountain Southwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced last week that Arizona Public Media staff received 13 individual Emmy® nominations for 8 projects across 8 categories, more than any other television station in the Tucson market. AZPM has again been nominated for the coveted Overall Excellence Award, which recognizes the contributions of the entire staff to overall station operations, local productions, and involvement in the community.

The symbol of excellence in the television industry, the Emmy is presented to individuals working on television productions in both the Program and Craft (editing, audio production, talent, etc.) categories. Entries are judged by peers at television stations outside the Rocky Mountain region. The Emmy judges clearly recognize the work and dedication of the talented team at AZPM and have acknowledged that commitment with these nominations. Winners will be announced at an online gala in mid-September. A full list of AZPM’s Emmy nominees is available on the AZPM website.
