Santa Monica’s cable television station, CityTV, capped off another successful year of quality local programming by winning its 10th Emmy at this year’s 2010 Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards.
CityTV won the Public Service Announcement (PSA) category with its “Kids Finance PSA,” a video geared toward teaching children the value and importance of saving money for the future, city officials said. The PSA’s fun graphics and mix of live action with 2-D animation made it stand out amongst the competition.
“It has been an incredible year for CityTV with our added channels and our previous award for best channel in the state,” said Robin Gee, CityTV station manager. “We are proud to have achieved the milestone of having 10 Emmy statues for our trophy case.”
The “Kids Finance PSA” was produced by Darren Doerschel and Al Johnson. You can view the Emmy award-winning PSA at www.citytv.org.
