CPTV Wins Ten Emmy Awards – More than Any Station in New England

 

HARTFORD, Conn. (June 3, 2013) – Connecticut Public Television (CPTV) is proud to announce that it won ten Emmy Awards from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) Boston/New England Chapter. During the award ceremony held on Saturday, June 1, 2013, at the Boston Marriott Copley Place, CPTV was honored in a variety of categories for its work during the 2012 television season. With ten Emmys awarded that evening, CPTV received more awards than any other station in New England.

 

The Real McCoy – a documentary about the life of prohibition-era bootlegger William “Bill” McCoy – was the most acclaimed program of the evening, with Bailey Pryor winning a total of five Emmys for Outstanding Documentary, Director, Writer, Editor and Photographer.

 

During this awards season, the subject of prohibition proved to be a winner for CPTV as its documentary Prohibition: Connecticut Goes Dry – produced, directed and written by Jennifer Boyd – also won for Outstanding Historical/Cultural Program or Special.

 

The CPTV magazine series All Things Connecticut was awarded Outstanding Magazine Feature/Segment for its profile of Jol Dantzig, a Connecticut resident who has designed and built specialty guitars for some of the greatest legends in music, including John Lennon, George Harrison, Sting and Mark Knopfler among others.

 

Marking its 50th anniversary this year, CPTV was also honored for a program that captured the holiday celebrations, decorations and musical performances at the Governor’s Residence in Hartford. Open for the Holidays: A Celebration at the Governor’s Residence won an Emmy for Outstanding Special Event Coverage.

 

“CPTV has long been known as the station that tells Connecticut’s stories,” said Jerry Franklin, president and CEO of the Connecticut Public Broadcasting Network (CPBN), parent company of CPTV. “It’s wonderful now to see those stories of Connecticut’s history, education, industry and artistic endeavors honored with so many Emmy Awards. I congratulate our extraordinary group of producers and staff for their exemplary work.”
