NBC 5, Telemundo win Emmys for 2013 Chicago Auto Show telecasts

December 6, 2013
 NBC 5 Chicago and Telemundo Chicago both won a Chicago Emmy Award for their 60- minute broadcasts of the 2013 Chicago Auto Show. Emmy winners were announced Nov. 3. 
The stations’ specials were produced under a unique, joint local effort that resulted in broadcasts for the English-speaking and Spanish-speaking markets. Both nominations came in the category, "Outstanding Achievement for Special Event Coverage." Telemundo’s show was edited; the NBC 5 show was live.
Kurt Schiele, chairman of the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, said the wins confirm the commitment of the city’s media to promote the nation’s premier auto show.
"We do our part 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," Schiele said.
 In all, the Chicago/Midwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences awarded Emmys for 68 categories of achievement.
