NBC 5 Chicago and Telemundo Chicago Net Emmy for 2013 Chicago Auto Show TV Specials

NBC 5 Chicago and Telemundo Chicago each received an Emmy for coverage of the 2013 Chicago Auto Show. NBC 5 Chicago netted the prestigious award in the "Outstanding Achievement for Special Event Coverage - Live" category and Telemundo won in the "Outstanding Achievement for Special Event Coverage - Edited (other than news or sports)" category. The 55th Annual Chicago/Midwest Emmy awards ceremony took place on Sunday, November 3, at the Alhambra Palace in Chicago's West Loop.

The NBC 5 and Telemundo Chicago teams worked closely with the Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA), producer of the Chicago Auto Show, the CATA board of directors and 2014 Chicago Auto Show Chairman Kurt Schiele to produce the coverage.

"The Chicago Auto Show is made up of so many exciting elements that appeal to a vast audience, and we thank our partners NBC 5 Chicago and Telemundo Chicago for bringing these aspects of the nation's largest auto show to life," said 2014 Chicago Auto Show Chairman Kurt Schiele. "It's always a pleasure to work with these very talented teams, and I applaud them for this outstanding accomplishment." 

This marks the third consecutive Emmy win for NBC 5 Chicago's live TV special from the Chicago Auto Show floor.

"It is exciting to win this honor three years in a row," said NBC 5 Chicago's President and General Manager David Doebler. "We value our association with the Chicago Automobile Trade Association and the Chicago Auto Show and look forward to our continued partnership."

"Working with the CATA and the Chicago Auto Show allows us to use creativity and inspires us to produce top quality programming," said Telemundo Chicago's President and General Manager Chris McDonnell. "Winning an Emmy for the production of the Chicago Auto Show special is a true testament of our commitment to providing in-depth coverage, a unique perspective and quality information to our viewers."
