Metro Detroit: Newsmakers June 17, 2007




Detroit Free Press:

WXYZ-TV (Channel 7) edged WDIV-TV (Local 4), 18-14, in the latest Detroit and Michigan awards for TV excellence, the local Emmys. But WDIV's 14 awards -- including wins by affiliated independent producers -- are impressive considering they came from just 19 nominations. Channel 7 had 30 nods, including more than one in some categories. The list of winners was provided to the Free Press before Saturday night's awards ceremony by the presenters, the local chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. WJBK-TV (Channel 2) was third with six statuettes, which came from 10 nominations. Fox Sports Net Detroit had five wins out of 24 nominations. Public WTVS-TV (Channel 56) and its affiliated producers won three, as did WMYD-TV (Channel 20), all by its affiliate producer Palace Sports & Entertainment... WXYZ leads the city in Emmy wins (Sun, 6/17)

When 25,000 people show up at a Tulsa, Okla., charity concert, it probably was organized by Scott Herrold. Herrold and another Plymouth-Canton schools alum, Jake Bugeja, are among the top 30 broadcasters under 30 years old, according to the Edison Media Research group. The search was conducted through nominations. Most of the winners are from U.S. stations. The listings were announced locally by Bill Keith, station manager of WSDP, the school district's student FM radio station at 88.1. Herrold graduated from Salem High School in 1998. Bugeja graduated from the Starkweather Education Center program in 2002... Salem, Starkweather alums are radio aces (Sun, 6/10)
