ABC7 Chicago wins Emmy for 2016 Chicago Auto Show special

December 16, 2016
The 2016 Chicago Auto Show special produced jointly in February by ABC7 Chicago and the Chicago Automobile Trade Association this month won a Chicago/Midwest Regional Emmy Award. 
The hourlong program took top honors for Outstanding Achievement for Special Event Coverage and was presented by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Telemundo Chicago was nominated in the same category for its 2016 Chicago Auto Show special.
"It is gratifying to see the ABC7 Auto Show special and the CATA receive this prestigious Chicago/Midwest Emmy Award," said John Idler, ABC7 president and general manager. "We are particularly proud to showcase the great work the local automotive dealers do in the communities they serve."
Colin Wickstrom, chairman of the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, said ABC7’s win and Telemundo Chicago’s nomination confirm the commitment of the city’s media to promote the nation’s premier auto show.
"We do our part," Wickstrom said, "to present an auto show worthy of the coverage, and my hat is off to the stations for their work to broadcast the event in a manner worthy of an Emmy."
