ATCEMS and ATXN win Lone Star Emmy

Thursday, October 8, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

Yesterday, it was announced that the city’s news channel, ATXN, and the Austin-Travis County EMS won a Lone Star Emmy Award for their collaboration on a public service announcement about the city’s Shattered Dreams program. That video, which won in the Children/Youth/Teen Program category, can be viewed here. According to a statement about the honor, “Shattered Dreams is a two-day, school-based program that promotes responsible decision-making among high school students regarding underage drinking and impaired driving by showing them how irresponsible choices can end in tragedy. … ATXN Station Manager Keith Reeves, Senior Producer/Videographer Jonathan Uhl and Video Production Specialist James Williams presented Austin-Travis County EMS with their National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences EMMY statuette for their Co-coordinator/Technical Advisor role in the ‘Shattered Dreams’ production filmed during the Vandergrift High School Shattered Dreams Program. EMS Chief Ernesto Rodriguez and EMS Chief of Staff James Shamard accepted the award on behalf of Austin-Travis County EMS.”
