The Wartburg College Communication Arts Department added a national Emmy to the walls of history tonight.
ESPN producer Scott Harves ’97 won his first national sports Emmy to his resume Monday night. The ceremony has been a lot like the daytime Emmy’s for Susan Lucci. The “All My Children” star was always nominated, but only won once. Scott had been nominated double-digit times before. This is his first statuette.
The Mother Ship’s Outside the Lines took home most of the hardware.
ESPN won four Sports Emmys for its excellence in journalism. The network’s acclaimed investigative series Outside the Lines won three Sports Emmys across three categories – Long Feature: The Man Behind the Red Bandana; Short Feature: Time Out of Mind; Editing:Joplin, City of Hope. Additionally, the prime-time news magazine show, E:60, was cited in theShort Feature category for “Together.” This is the 11th consecutive year ESPN has received a Sports Emmy in at least one of the two categories for Features.
Scott was the producer on the Joplin, City of Hope. He spent time in Joplin after the football team after the deadly tornadoes as they prepared to begin a new season in a changed town.
He was nominated in 4 categories Monday night at the New York City ceremony.
Nice picture with Scott Shaquille Rashaun O’Neal. Prior to this win, one of the biggest highlights he had at the ceremony was sitting next to Kelly Rippa’s husband.
Here is a trailer for Scott’s piece.
