ATLANTA—Georgia State University TV (GSUTV), the university’s partnership with Georgia Public Broadcasting, won two Southeastern Emmy awards.
As Georgia State’s media station, GSUTV provides students with training for creating broadcast content and airs special programs throughout Georgia and to a national network of PBS stations via cable, satellite, and digital platforms. The Emmy winners were announced Saturday evening in an awards ceremony live streamed from Atlanta.
GSUTV’s 2020 Emmy Award winners were:
- “Our Plastic World,” won first place in Documentary – Topical and Health/Science – Program Feature/Segment.
- The 2019 Georgia High School Musical Theatre Awards (The Shulers), the two-hour broadcast production won first place in Special Event Coverage – Live.
The Southeast Emmys are presented annually to industry professionals and organizations who are recognized for their accomplishments, said Bob Judson, Georgia State professor and GSUTV managing director. Voting members include past winners, network and cable television executives, and peers.
GSUTV also recently received fourteen International Telly Awards for its programming.
“Georgia State students are an integral part of these productions and several past students have been recipients of Emmys and International Telly Awards,” Judson said. “With the addition of this year’s awards one of our recent graduates has received two Emmys.
“The number of industry awards garnered by GSUTV speaks to the quality of our journalism program, the support of the university, college and the department of communication, and the dedication of our staff and instructors.”
