Nominations for the 36th annual Northern California Area Emmy Awards were announced this morning, and the station in Sacramento that's been recognized the most: Channel 19 (KUVS), our Univision affiliate.
Channel 19 garnered 11 nominations, including one of the biggies: News Excellence. News10 received 10 nominations, and channels 3 and 13 each had five. Channel 3 was nominated for Station Excellence and News Excellence, an impressive double.
Sacramento stations were shut out in the Best Evening and Daytime Newscast categories. But, local stations had six of the nine nominations for Feature News Report - Light category. (Nobody does news "light" better than Sac!)
Here are some highlights, but you can read the entire list of nominees here:
* The oft-maligned (at least in this space) Kurtis Ming (pictured) of Channel 13 was nominated twice - in the Investigative Report and Feature News Report - Light categories. (Channel 3's Josh Bernstein and former Channel 19 reporter Tatiana Bedoya also were nominated for Investigative Reports.)
* Channel 19's Santiago Lucero was nominated in three categories, News10's Jonathan Mumm in two.
* Channel 6 (KVIE), Sacramento's PBS station, received three nominations for Current Affairs and Cultural programming.
* News10's Ryan Yamamoto was the only Sacramento sports anchor to be nominated.
