Goshen wins first Emmy Award

GOSHEN, IND.—Goshen College’s FiveCore Media won a National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) Lower Great Lakes Chapter regional Emmy award on June 12, the college’s first win out of four nominations. The special live event coverage Emmy was awarded for FiveCore Media’s production of the Goshen College Music Department’s “A Festival of Carols 2020” during a virtual-awards ceremony. Other nominees in the category were Digital Alchemy in Cleveland and WTHR in Indianapolis. A Festival of Carols is Goshen College’s yearly Christmas concert featuring the college’s choirs, ensembles and the local Rejoice Children’s Choir. The television special aired on several PBS stations in the midwest region. The production was almost solely student-produced under the direction of Kyle Hufford, FiveCore Media’s executive director and a Goshen College associate professor of communications. “This Emmy is a testament to the hard work of our Goshen College students and FiveCore staff,” Hufford says. “We have been knocking on the door with nominations in the past, but this year the students were finally recognized by broadcast industry professionals for their excellence.” Regional Emmy Awards are given in 19 regions across the United States.
