Nearly 10 months after the doors closed on the 2011 Chicago Auto Show, we're still winning awards. NBC 5 Chicago was presented with the Emmy for "Outstanding Achievement for Special Event Coverage Live" for its program covering the 2011 Chicago Auto Show.
The Chicago Automobile Trade Association, producers of the Chicago Auto Show, and its board of directors worked closely with NBC 5 Chicago and also with sister-station Telemundo Chicago to produce the special, which aired on Saturday, February 12, 2011. This isn't the first Emmy NBC 5 Chicago has collected for it's coverage of the Chicago Auto Show and we're certain it won't be the last.
Kudos to NBC 5 Chicago personnel Carol Cooling, Matt Piacente, Geoff Glick, Edward Mann, Producers; Brant Miller, Ginger Zee, Charlie Wojciechowski, Paula Faris, LeeAnn Trotter, Matt Rodewald, Co-Producers/Hosts; Tony Vitale, Patrick Lake, Trisha Hockings, Jan Golden, Mary Hynes, Alison Ebert and Jessica Brannon Kelly.
We will again be working with NBC 5 Chicago this year so make sure you stay tuned for the live broadcast Chicago Auto Show that will be airing on February 11. Better yet, come on down to the show and see if you can get on TV!
