Fox 32 auto show telecast wins Emmy

November 18, 2010

WFLD-TV Fox 32 Chicago captured a Emmy for its coverage of the 2006 Chicago Auto Show. Two other Chicago stations also were nominated for their auto show broadcasts. 

The Fox 32 special, "2006 Chicago Auto Show," won in the category, "Outstanding Achievement for Special Event Programs—Live Special Event Program (not sports)."


WGN-TV Channel 9 was competing in the same category with its program, "The 2006 Chicago Auto Show in HD;" and NBC5 Chicago was one of 11 candidates in the category, "Outstanding Achievement for Special Event Programs—Special Event Program, Edited," with the telecast, "NBC5 Presents: The 2006 Chicago Auto Show."


The Emmys were presented by the Chicago/Midwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. The chapter awarded Emmys in 64 categories during a Nov. 19 ceremony in Chicago.


Terry D’Arcy, chairman of the 2007 Chicago Auto Show, said Fox 32’s win and the nominations of WGN-TV and NBC5 Chicago confirm the commitment of the city’s media to promote the nation’s premier auto show.


"We do our part," D’Arcy 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."
