Regional Emmys announced

It’s been the same way for years, but this year something is different. WTAE is abstaining from the Emmys. 4’s news director, Bob Longo resigned as a member of NATAS stating that Philadelphia seems to be favored over Pittsburgh – even though it’s their chapter. (Not that anyone asked, but we found this YouTube Video of Longo professing his theory of what SHOULD happen.) Anyhow, according to the Post-Gazette, historically WPXI and KDKA have sat out from the awards. This year, KDKA has 11 nominations and WQED has 20 nominations – mostly for OnQ. WPXI is sitting out from submissions but has been nominated for one award. The awards will be presented on 9/15.
