Teen Kids News — a VITAC captioned show — has just received an Emmy award for regional programming.
The show is produced in New York and broadscast in over 175 countries via the American Services Network, as well as right here in the US. It is a news program by teens, for teens, and features teen anchors like Mwanzaa and Jessica (they only go by first names) reporting on feature stories about positive, socially mided topics. Its stories’ subjects include kids who started their own recycling initiatives, or adults looking to make the web a safer place for young adults. One story even featured VITAC!
The show has aired for 10 years and is the project of creator/producer Albert Primo and producer Alan Weiss. It has received numerous awards before this one, including the Silver Circle award from the National cademy of the Arts and Sciences, Hermes Creative Award, Angel Award, George Washington Honor Medal and several Accolade, Telly, and Communicator Awards. Of course, it is captioned by VITAC.
Great job, TKN, and keep up the good work!
