|Post 50 Teens Receive Emmy Nod|
Some Durham teenagers have already received their first Emmy nomination. Students in Explorer Post 50, sponsored by FOX 50 and the Durham Bulls, were one of only three student groups nominated for the Student Production Emmy by the Midsouth region.
“I am very happy for our crew and extremely proud of the job they’re doing,” said Bare. “Being nominated is a wonderful honor and very rewarding for the students who worked so hard.”
WRAL-TV & FOX 50 On Emmy Nomination List
CBC television stations WRAL-TV and WRAZ-TV received a host of Emmy nominations. A total of 208 nominations were culled from the record-setting 700 entries, representing 70 television stations and production companies in the Midsouth region. The awards will be presented on Saturday, February 2, 2002, at a ceremony at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, TN.
Congratulations to both stations
Rob Jentsch, a member of Explorer Post 50 for the first time this year expressed his thoughts to the Post’s leaders, “I have never seen anything like it. Many group members had incredible work ethics and were very interested in learning the trade; with Aaron [Bare]’s leadership we had great potential. I really appreciated the support of all of the very knowledgeable members. Thank you for providing students with such an educational, fun, interesting, positive, informative, and very beneficial opportunity to learn about broadcasting a game.”
Explorer Post 50 was founded in 1999 after Capitol Broadcasting CEO Jim Goodmon decided to use the Durham Bulls and Fox 50 to expand the opportunities in Exploring to the Durham community. The students of Explorer 50 have been producing a closed-circuit broadcast for Bulls’ home games since 1999. This season, the Bulls and Fox 50 expanded the program to broadcast 32 home games on WRAZ-DT, Fox 50’s digital channel.
