Emmy Presented for ‘06 Fox Coverage
Tuesday, December 19, 2006
What event could possibly provide a better pu-pu platter of exciting visuals than the nation’s largest auto show? Since the early 1950s, the Chicago Auto Show has been a marquis feature for many of the area’s and nation’s television outlets.
“The 2006 Chicago Auto Show” production by WFLD-TV Fox 32 Chicago was recently awarded the coveted EMMY Award in the category of Best Live Event Program by the Chicago Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Science.
“It’s wonderful to see all of the crews who are in our show producing long-format programming,” said Terry D’Arcy, chairman of the 2007 Chicago Auto Show. “We’re constantly amazed at the resources the stations devote to this spectacular event.
Each year, we attempt to make it easier for any media outlet to use our show as a launching point for their programming. The cooperation we get from the McCormick Place management only helps to make it easier and cost-effective for news and feature program management.
“On behalf of Art Kelly, chairman of last year’s show, and the entire Board of Directors of the Chicago Automobile Trade Association, bravo to the Fox 32 team for a job well done—and properly recognized by their peers at the television academy.”
With Fox returning to produce yet another special, will NBC5 Chicago respond with more spectacular coverage? Will Cable SuperStation WGN’s High Defi nition show with MotorWeek’s John Davis teaming with Robin Baumgarten wow the judges’ eyes with the depth of new technology? Stay tuned!
