SEATTLE CHANNEL Nominated for 17 Emmys

SEATTLE CHANNEL was honored to receive 17 Emmy nominations from the Northwest Chapter of National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) on Thursday night, April 15. The NATAS region includes five states: Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington.

 The Channel’s nominations include station excellence where SEATTLE CHANNEL, a government access station, will compete against Seattle’s largest commercial stations, KING, KIRO and KOMO, as well as two of Portland’s commercial stations, KGW and KATU, and Idaho Public Television.

“We want to thank our peers in the broadcast media for this recognition. Credit should not only go to the talented and creative individuals who received the nominations but also to the entire staff of SEATTLE CHANNEL who work hard every day to serve the residents of Seattle,” said SEATTLE CHANNEL station manager Beth Hester.

It’s been another year of significant achievement for SEATTLE CHANNEL. Visits to the station’s website nearly doubled in the last year, and the Channel was recognized in September 2010 as the best government TV station in the United States by the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors.
