I hope you enjoyed Ken Burns’s latest series, The National Parks: America’s Best Idea on WXXI. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been stopped over the past few weeks by people who watched the series and loved it.
September marks the beginning of the new school year and a renewed focus on educational services at WXXI. So it is with great pride that I share some exciting news. WXXI has won its first national Emmy Award in its 42-year history and it is for one of our children’s productions. Biz Kid$, a WXXI co-production that promotes financial literacy for children, has garnered a Daytime Emmy Award. Though WXXI has won numerous regional and national awards for its programming, this is our first national Emmy and we couldn’t be more pleased!
