Mid-Atlantic Emmy nominations announced

Friday, August 08, 2003

By Rob Owen, Post-Gazette Tv Editor

As expected, WTAE and WQED received the bulk of the Pittsburgh nominations yesterday in the Mid-Atlantic Emmy Awards competition. Philadelphia outlets, as usual, took home the majority of the nominations.

As stations, KDKA, WPXI and WPGH don't enter the regional Emmys, although individual employees sometimes do.

WTAE captured 16 nods, WQED had 14, Fox SportsNet Pittsburgh and KDKA had three each and the Pittsburgh Steelers and WPXI had one nomination each. WPGH received a single individual achievement nomination for weathercaster Matt Morano, who was laid off by the station earlier this year.

Nominations are for reports broadcast predominantly in 2002 (the eligibility period was April 1, 2002, to March 31, 2003). Winners will be announced at a ceremony Sept. 13 in Philadelphia.
