Glendale 11 TV Earns Emmy Award For Best Environment Program
Glendale 11 TV is the proud recipient of one of the much sought-after 2009 Rocky Mountain Emmy Awards, which were given by the Rocky Mountain Southwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences this past weekend.
The station earned this prestigious award in the Best Environment Program/Special category for “Glendale’s Home Green Home,” a program about Glendale’s partnership with Habitat for Humanity to build the first platinum level LEED home in the state of Arizona. Glendale’s Neighborhood Services Department spearheaded this successful building project that transformed a dirt lot into a much needed home for one well-deserving Glendale family. “Glendale’s Home Green Home” was generously funded by donations from the Jenny Norton and Bob Ramsey Foundation.

The program was produced by Gary Stafford and Julie Watters and hosted by Nick Calderone, in partnership with the staff of Glendale 11.
The Emmy Awards are sponsored by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS), which recognizes excellence in broadcasting throughout the country. The Rocky Mountain region draws entries from five Western states, including programming from commercial film and production companies, broadcast news networks and advertising agencies. Glendale is one of only two government TV stations in the entire state to win an Emmy this year.
“Glendale 11 has been a leader in creating green programming that has educated and informed residents about what green practices and programs the city offers,” said Julie Frisoni, Glendale assistant deputy city manager. “This award is a testament to Glendale 11’s ability and expertise to take environmental and innovative ideas to the next level and create top-notch programming.”
This is the third time “Glendale’s Home Green Home” has received recognition. The TV program won a 2nd place from NATOA (National Association of Telecommunication Officers and Advisors), a national government station group and is a finalist in the U.S. Green Building Council’s annual film festival.
Emmy Award-winning Glendale 11 airs on Cox and Qwest Channel 11, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For a complete viewer’s program guide, click here.
