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!

Here's the official press release with comments from NBC 5 Chicago

NBC 5 Presents the 2011 Chicago Auto Show was honored with an Emmy in the category of  "Outstanding Achievement for Special Event Coverage - Live" at the 53rd  Chicago/Midwest Emmy Awards held on Nov. 6th in Chicago. The team worked in partnership with the CATA, the board of directors and the 2011 show chairman, Kevin Mize.

Everyone involved looks forward to production planning on the 2012 special with this year's chairman Steve X. Foley, Jr. NBC 5 and sister station Telemundo Chicago are humbled to have been Emmy nominees and Emmy recipients for Chicago Auto Show coverage in the past.

According to NBC 5's President & General Manager Larry Wert, "This 2011 honor is a tribute to the hard work and team work of all involved.   It is truly a privilege to be to recognized by the TV Academy and our industry peers. We look forward to our continued association with the CATA in 2012 and beyond."
