2018 Emmy® Winners


On June 23, 2018 over 400 broadcasting industry professionals gathered at the Crane Bay in Indianapolis, IN to witness the 49th Annual Emmy® Awards gala presented by NATAS Lower Great Lakes Chapter. Many more were able to watch the awards ceremony via our Facebook Live Stream of the event. Special thanks to Spectrum Sports, without whose assistance, the Facebook live broadcast would not have been possible. Thanks as well to all the nominees for their excellent entries.

Seating reservations are sold out for the 2018 NATAS Lower Great Lakes Chapter Emmy® Gala. We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be live streaming the 49th Annual NATAS Lower Great Lakes Chapter Emmy® Awards Gala to Facebook. There will be two separate streams… one for the Pre-Awards, which will begin a bit after 6:45pm, and a second stream for the Awards ceremony, which will begin about 10 minutes after the Pre-Awards segment, and end at roughly 10:30pm. Times are approximate. To watch the show, just tune in to our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/nataslgl

If you will be at the gala, but have friends or family not be in attendance, this is a great opportunity to spread the word and share the moment with those closest to you.

We’d like to thank Spectrum Sports for their assistance in helping us pull the broadcast together. We couldn’t have done it without you!

A winners list will be posted to the NATAS-LGL website at 11pm. We look forward to another great evening of celebrating the best in local television journalism.
