College of Communications Brings Home Four Emmy Awards

Penn State football wasn’t the only team of Nittany Lions that picked up a win this weekend. The College of Communications walked away with four Mid-Atlantic Regional Emmy awards in Philadelphia on Saturday.

Centre County Report beat out the Temple Update and DNews from Drexel University for Best University Student Production. CCR is produced solely by students in the College of Communications.

“To have an Emmy win on your resume at this early stage of their careers is fantastic. I’m very proud of their efforts and I hope we can keep producing top-quality news and sports programs,” said Steve Kraycik, the Director of Student Television and supervises Centre County Report.

Other awards include best general assignment report by Christian Hellman, best student sports production by Patrick Woo and Matthew Trabold, and best long form nonfiction report from “In The Game” by Sophia Perri and Matthew Trabold.

You can catch Centre County Report every Friday at 9 p.m. on WPSU. The winning newscast is from April 19, 2013 and can be viewed here:
