WCMU Public Television’s “Destination Michigan” received a regional Emmy Award from The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Michigan Chapter.
Accepting the Emmy on Saturday, June 16, were crew members Steven Smith, Stefanie Mills, Adam Miedema, Chris Ogozaly and Matthew Ozanich. Bob Garner, who also contributed to the program, was unable to attend.
“The joy of ‘Destination Michigan’ is that the show wouldn’t be possible without the amazing stories our viewers share with us,” said Ogozaly, executive producer. “We share this honor with the hundreds who have made ‘Destination Michigan’ a staple of Thursday night television on WCMU.”
The Emmy-winning episode features stories about the AuSable River Canoe Marathon, artist Gwen Frostic, photographer Neil Weaver and a pirate ship that sails the Straits of Mackinac.
“Destination Michigan,” now in its ninth season, is an original series of WCMU Public Television that explores Michigan’s splendor and showcases the people and places that make our state a remarkable place to live.
Earlier this year, “Destination Michigan” received the Broadcast Excellence Award from the Michigan Association of Broadcasters.
