This Year’s Emmy® Winners

2017 Emmy WinnersOn June 17, 2017 over 400 broadcasting industry professionals gathered at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown to witness the 48th 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 whose excellent submissions certainly made life difficult for the judges. To view the list of winners from this year’s awards, click here. Links for photos and acceptance speech videos will be made available in the coming weeks, so check back soon.

Emmy® Awards Gala Streamed Live to Facebook

NATAS Lower Great Lakes Chapter live streamed the 48th Annual NATAS Lower Great Lakes Chapter Emmy® Awards Gala to Facebook. The live broadcast will began on Saturday, June 17th at around 6:40pm, and ended some time around 11:00pm. Due to length, the stream was broken into two segments available in separate posts. If you missed the show, it is still available on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/nataslgl.

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!
