Television programs produced by students in the Department of Radio-Television in the School of Journalism at The University of Montana have earned Emmy nominations in four categories.
The Emmys are presented by the Northwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
Thirty-three students working on UM News, a weekly update of campus news broadcast on the Montana Television Network, were nominated in the news, sports and cultural affairs categories. The 2011 student documentary “Connecting the 406” earned a nomination in the long-form nonfiction category. That program aired on MontanaPBS in 2011.
The Emmy Awards ceremony will be held Saturday, June 2, in Snoqualmie, Wash.
