We’re in good company. This year’s entries included work from: Clear Channel, The Chicago Tribune, Cox Media, NBC, Disney, NASA, Discovery Time Life, Sports Illustrated, ESPN, CNN,  and  Harpo Studios, to name just a few. The award is very much a team effort that includes everyone who works on the production at KERA, Channel 13, camera crew, lighting, sound and our guests.  The entries are awarded to both the Host, Dennis  McCuistion, and the Producer, Niki N. McCuistion, and  evaluated for several different criteria that include:

·    Production quality
·    On Screen talent quality- host and guests
·    Editing
·    Lighting
·    Writing and any cinematography

Earning a Telly is a significant creative achievement. To date the McCuistion Program has earned over 30 Telly Awards. Thank you again for your support and good wishes as we talk about “things that matter with people who care” in this our 20th anniversary.

We couldn’t have done it without you.
