External Affairs

UWTVlogo_Basic_PurpleAndYellowThe University of Washington’s award-winning public television station, UWTV, received nominations for two EMMY® awards by the Northwest Regional Chapter of the National Academy of Television. UWTV’s multiple EMMY®award nominations are represented by a program and individual story segment from UWTV’s monthly news-magazine program, UW360.

The March 2013 episode of UW 360 is nominated in the Public/Current/Community Affairs “Special” category. The episode features a story that explores the Burke Museum Artifact ID Day, looks inside the new Husky Stadium, visits a glass making class at UW Tacoma, profiles the UW Drama’s Undergraduate Theater Society, and presents a story of Cold War espionage from UW Alumnus and retired CIA operative, Vaughn Sherman ‘51.

Another segment from the March UW 360 is nominated in the Historical/Culture category. This UW360 short-story delves into the life of former CIA operative and UW graduate, Vaughn Sherman ’51, as he recounts experiences from his CIA service during the Cold War.

With an abundance of UW stories to tell, each episode gives you a chance to discover a new facet of the university. UW360 can be seen on Sundays at 9 p.m. on UWTV and Saturdays at 4:30 on KOMO 4 TV.

More information about the Northwest Regional Emmy Awards is available at Winners will be announced on Saturday, June 7.
