Local Emmy Winner

Even though it's been fairly well documented that my two Emmy nominations didn't result in a win, I would like to congratulate photojournalist Austin Gwin from WFMY for bringing home the Triad's only Emmy this year.

Austin won the Emmy in the Editor / News Category for a story called 'The Big Bang' that was a compalation of all the camera angles that he had at his disposal from the May 2005 Burlington Industries Implosion.

Austin didn't make the trip out to Nashville and was watching on TV at home when he saw that he won.

I took this picture of Austin Monday at an impromptu press conference about the passing of Corretta Scott King.

Expect to see Austin with the Emmy in hand in the near future, instead of a light stand. And expect him to consider heading to Nasvhille the next time he's nominated for an Emmy!!!
