From Kate Spears, Social Media & Events, East Tennessee PBS –
East Tennessee PBS is honored to have been nominated for two MidSouth Regional Emmy® Awards in the Documentary/Historical Category for 2018. The nominations were announced by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, and recognized East Tennessee PBS for the films “A Sense of Revolution” and “The Vietnam War: East Tennessee-A True American.”
Both films were produced as part of our initiative “The Vietnam War: East Tennessee” which were created as a local component to complement the national series “The Vietnam War” from Ken Burns.
“We are so honored to have been nominated for two regional Emmy Awards,” said East Tennessee PBS President & CEO Vickie Lawson. “Working with veterans to help tell their stories is a key component of our mission and commitment to education.”
Lawson went on to say, “By sharing the often untold stories of our veterans, we are able to provide a perspective that might otherwise not be realized and while we may have helped facilitate the telling of the stories, these accolades truly belong to the men and women whose bravery and sacrifice make our work worthwhile.”
