Las Vegas, Nevada - The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Pacific Southwest Chapter has nominated KCLV-TV Channel 2, the city’s award-winning government-access channel, for two Regional Emmy Awards.
The station is nominated for two segments that appeared on the city’s news magazine program, “City Beat,” hosted by Nancy Byrne.
The first, “Healing Garden,” was written and produced by Sue Leavitt and shot by Videographer Eric Sorenson, and shows the evolution of the Las Vegas Healing Garden in the downtown following the tragic shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Oct. 1, 2017. Editor/Videographer Steve Horlock contributed a time lapse of the garden’s construction to the segment. This nomination is in the category of Public Affairs programming.
The second nomination is for “Chief for a Day.” This piece was shot by Sorenson and edited by Steven Tyler Pierce, and follows a young boy battling a terminal illness whose dream was to be a fire chief. The Las Vegas Fire & Rescue Department helped the child experience that wish. This nomination is in the category of Human Interest programming.
The nominations were announced Thursday, May 3, and winners are scheduled to be announced June 16, 2018.
KCLV Channel 2 features live City Council and Planning Commission meetings, as well as specials and shows such as “Access City Council,” “City Beat” and “Trending Vegas.” In addition to being offered on the Cox Communications and CenturyLink TV cable systems, KCLV is available on Livestream, Apple TV and Roku.
These segments that were nominated can be viewed on the station’s YouTube channel.
