The television stations of CNYCentral are proud to announce our work has been honored with four New York Emmy nominations by the New York Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
Two of the most memorable stories of the last year and a half were honored with New York Emmy nominations. The first nomination is for the stories following the struggles of the Friedel family and Baby Easton. Michael Benny and photographer Andy Wolf documented the battle for the baby to survive the effects of a rare skin disease. The story was nominated for an Emmy for Best Serious News Feature.
The documentary "A Saint for Central New York" was honored with three New York Emmy nominations. That was the program that told the story of Mother Marianne Cope and her path to canonization which ultimately led to Pope Benedict canonizing her during a high ceremony at St. Peter's Square. The broadcast was produced in conjunction with WCNY-TV. Matt Mulcahy and Jim Aroune were each honored with two nominations. One for Best Writer: Program, the other for Best Craft Specialty Research. Photographers Andy Wolf and David Fulkerson were nominated for Best Photographer: Program.
Both of these stories have already received several honors including awards from the New York State Broadcasters Association and the Syracuse Press Club.
The New York Emmy Award ceremony is on Sunday, March 30th at the Mariott Marquis in Times Square, New York City.
