TV-10 Students nominated for EMMY awards

NORMAL – Illinois State University’s student-run TV station has had some of its students nominated for multiple EMMY’s. 

TV-10 is works closely with ISU journalism students, training them in the fields of live television writing, broadcasting, and production.

Select TV-10 students were nominated for the awards by the National Academy of Televisions Arts & Science (NATAS) on September 24. 

The EMMY categories include Best Newscast, News General Assignment, Arts and Entertainment/Cultural Affairs, and Sports Production.

TV-10’s student nominees are:

College Student Production-Newscast: Haley Kosik, Jenna Wells, Brad Fosler (with Kate Chapman, Dania De La Hoya, Cal Placher, William Price, Emily Long, Ally Christiani, Andy Olson, and Trisha Fritz).

College Student General Assignment: Hannah Zettl (with Nick Molinare and Gage Morgan)

Laura Trendle Polus, ISU communications instructor and TV-10 News Director, spoke about what working at TV-10 is like for students, and also attested to the talent and dedication of the students who were nominated.

“We run the program in a very realistic and practical way,” said Trendle Polus. “We do a newscast every single day, we focus on local news, and so many universities do not do that. The students who are nominated are extremely hardworking and dedicated to their craft, and they’re definitely in it for all the right reasons.”

TV-10 News nominees will travel to Chicago on November 10 to attend the 2018 Chicago-Midwest EMMY Awards Ceremony.
