Another year, another Los Angeles Area Emmy Award for Santa Monica’s CityTV.

It’s CityTV’s 11th Emmy win and the second time in a row the public access station won the Public Service Announcement (PSA) category. The PSA for the Toy Loan Program, which was created in association with Los Angeles County, was produced as part of the Women in Film Public Service Announcement Production Program.

This is the third year for the program partnership, and its first Emmy win.

“The program provides non-profits with powerful PSAs to help raise public awareness of their cause, and it also [gives] aspiring women directors, producers and writers the opportunity to expand their skill set while giving back to the community,” said CityTV Station Manager Robin Gee.
