Elon Television, ESTV
win Videographer Awards


Elon Student Television's "Phoenix14News" and two Elon Television productions have been recognized with four 2004 Videographer Awards of Distinction. This honor is reserved for only those broadcast productions that clearly exceed industry standards.

"Phoenix14News" took home awards for its 2004 graphics and animation package, designed by P.J. Buckley and Scott Myrick, and a March 15, 2004, newscast that included coverage of the Elon Board of Trustees' decision to move forward with the school of law initiative.

Elon's student-produced television news program has been honored five times this year, including recogniations at the recent Broadcast Education Association conference.

Elon Television was also honored with two awards. The first was for the documentary, "The Shining Lights of Opuwo," produced by Elon sociology Professor Tom Arcaro and Elon Television video producer J. McMerty through Project Pericles. A community involvement project, Pericles is funding an initiative by Elon students under Arcaro's direction to illuminate the issue of AIDS in Namibia. The documentary includes footage from the African nation.

The second ETV award was for Elon's university football recap program "Touchdown Phoenix Football." The weekly show airs on Elon Television and Comcast Sports South weekly in the fall.
