April 2, 2012 - NYC Media, the official television network of the City of New York, has won three New York Emmy Awards. The 55th Annual New York Emmy Awards took place on April 1 at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. At the ceremony, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg received the 2012 Governors’ Award for his contributions to advance and promote television in New York City with the Office of Media & Entertainment and the successful “Made in NY” program.
“I’m so proud of the accomplishments of the staff at NYC Media and our partners in the local production community,” said Katherine Oliver, commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment, which includes NYC Media. “We’re committed to making NYC life (Channel 25) a shining example of how a city-run television station can showcase the best of its community, culture and history.”
NYC Media won Emmys in the following categories:
Classroom on the Water – The Urban Assembly New York Harbor School
