Two WSRE productions, In Your Own Backyard: The Gulf Coast Hot Air Balloon Festival and Best of StudioAmped: Volume 2, have been awarded the bronze Telly Award for excellence in video and television production.
In Your Own Backyard, hosted by Sherri Hemminghaus Weeks, is about unique points of interest along the Gulf Coast. Producing this award-winning episode were WSRE’s James Roy (writer, producer, videographer and editor), videographer Kendall Faust and editor-videographer Ted King.
Previous Telly Award-winning episodes from the In Your Own Backyard series include “The Blue Angels Air Shows,” “Pensacon,” “Undersea Northwest Florida” and “Forts of Pensacola Bay: Advanced Redoubt.”
StudioAmped is WSRE’s long-running concert series featuring regional bands playing original music in the Jean & Paul Amos Performance Studio. Bill Harrell is the executive producer, James Roy is director-editor, Allen Abrahamson and Jeff Jordan are the broadcast audio engineers, and Ted King is technical director.
