In April, we announced that 14 Idaho Public Television productions were nominated for 2020 Northwest Regional Emmy Awards. This weekend we were thrilled to hear that two of those nominees placed first in their respective categories and were awarded Emmy statuettes.
“Sawtooths on My Mind” explores the attraction of this remarkable mountain range, from the point of view of people who are seeing it for the first time and folks who have worked for decades to preserve the unique flavor of the region. They all speak from the heart about one of Idaho’s truly inspiring landscapes.
“Idaho’s 12ers” explores Idaho’s 12,000-foot mountain peaks and the Idahoans who cherish them, from close up and from afar. Some seek thrills, some seek records, some push themselves to the edge of physical and mental endurance. But for most Idaho climbers, simply standing on the top of Idaho’s tallest mountains is reward enough.
Congratulations to executive producer Bruce Reichert, producers Bill Manny and Lauren Melink, videographer Jay Krajic, and all the others who worked on these productions!
