UCM COLLEGE OF EDUCATION AND KMOS-TV NOMINATED FOR PUBLIC MEDIA AWARDS

Four categories honor work on KMOS Classroom: Summer School

Three KMOS-TV projects have been nominated in six categories for the Public Media Awards, presented by the National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA) to honor stations’ work in education, community engagement, marketing/communications and content.

In this, the 52nd year of the awards, there were a record number of entries from stations across the country to recognize excellent community service through broadcast, digital media, podcasts and new categories related to handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. The finalists will be announced during the virtual 2021 NETA Conference & CPB Public Media Thought Leader Forum taking place in January.

“KMOS Classroom: Summer School” was nominated in the categories Overall Excellence: Excellence in Innovation, Community Engagement: Local Project, Content: Education/Schools, and Education: COVID-19 Education. Designed by KMOS-TV and the University of Central Missouri’s College of Education, “KMOS Classroom: Summer School” was created and broadcast throughout central Missouri to assist families in preparing their elementary school children for the fall semester, and to make up for the school closures of the spring semester. Airing for three hours daily Monday-Thursday over the summer, the series of 72 lessons for students K-5 was taught by three educators under the guidance of Dr. Angela Danley, UCM Associate Professor and Undergraduate Program Coordinator for Elementary Education.

Another pandemic-related program earned a nomination in the category Content: COVID-19 Content for taking on the subject in the early spring, just as Missourians were beginning to sequester. Airing on March 26, 2020, the live call-in program “KMOS NOW: COVID-19 Health” was broadcast over the air and streamed on Facebook Live. During this program an expert panel discussed the known medical and psychological aspects of the disease, as well as ways in which the medical and local government communities might respond. The hour-long program was hosted by veteran health and medical reporter Meryl Lin McKean, who has nearly four decades of experience during her time at WDAF-TV (Fox 4) in Kansas City. She currently serves on the UCM Alumni Foundation Board of Directors and KMOS Community Advisory Board.

The remaining nomination for KMOS was in the category Marketing/Communications: Promotion. This was for a special promotional video for the KMOS series on Missouri artisans entitled “Making” which premiered in the fall 2019. On a related note, one of the programs from this series honoring folks who create art and useful things was recently honored with a Regional Emmy® from the Mid-America chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

“Making” Earns Fourth Regional Emmy® Award for KMOS-TV

The series celebrates Missouri’s artisans and makers

“Making,” the six-part series hosted by Matt Burchett was recognized with a Regional Emmy® Award presented by the Mid-America Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences during the 44th Annual Mid-America Emmy® Awards Ceremony, which took place online November 21.

The Thunder Lodge Trading Company in Arrow Rock, featured in the fifth program of the series, was the winning entry in the category Informational/Instructional: Feature Segment, which recognizes excellence in a feature or segment from a presentation of stories whose prime purpose is to teach formally or informally about a subject.

Premiering in October, 2019, “Making” was created to introduce viewers to talented artisans, makers and crafts folk working in Missouri. KMOS producers Roy Millen, Christy Millen and Eric Boedeker traveled much of the state to highlight just a few of the talented Missourians who are creating beautiful art, useful devices, delicious food and much more. The entire series is available for viewing online at www.kmos.org.

This Emmy® Award is the fourth for the production team in three years. Previously they received awards in the Magazine Program category for: “Missouri Life Special Presentation: Silver Dollar City” (2017), “Missouri Life: Callaway County” (2018), and Missouri Life: Lebanon (2019.)
