/ ATLANTA -- "For journalists 2018 felt like a wild combination of tidal wave and ticker tape parade," said Regional Chapter President, Jeremy Campbell. "Across the Southeast journalists relentlessly covered a fierce midterm election, Atlanta United's MLS championship win, the devastation of Hurricane Michael and so many other impactful stories that matter to our viewers. The 2019 Emmy Awards program is bound be as energetic and amazing as the year it represents."
Campbell, a journalist at WXIA-TV in Atlanta, became the chapter's president in 2017. Since then, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Southeast Chapter (NATAS SE) has created strategic partnerships with SCAD, the Dekalb Entertainment Commission, Pinewood Studios and other organizations that want to partner with the Emmy Awards because of the excellence the award conveys. Campbell explains, "The award standards are very high, and when you win one, it tells people that you're work really made a difference in the lives of the viewers we serve. Our partners want to be connected with that."
NATAS SE is a professional, non-profit service organization dedicated to the advancement of the arts and sciences of television and the promotion of creative leadership for artistic, educational and technical achievements within the television industry. NATAS membership consists of over 16,000 broadcast and media professionals represented in 19 regional chapters across the country. Beyond awards, NATAS has extensive educational and scholarship programs for outstanding journalistic work.
As the Southeast Emmy Chapter readies itself to celebrate its 45th
Anniversary Emmy Awards Ceremony, Campbell and the NATAS SE Board of Governors are planning a multi-faceted show that will highlight the cities diversity as well as its commitment to excellence in television and digital media. "Our June 15 gala is going to special. With a rich 45-year history, we have a lot to draw on and an amazing story to tell."
The list of 2019 Southeast Emmy Award Nominees will be announced on Sunday, May 5 at 6pm at a special rooftop celebration at AC Moxy Hotel in Midtown Atlanta.
