TV-10 students top statewide competition

LeVar Burton and TV10

Actor LeVar Burton was interviewed by TV10 students during a campus visit last fall.

For the second consecutive year, TV-10 received nine awards at the 2011 Broadcasters Association Student Silver Dome competition. ISU’s student television program captured more honors than any other university television program in the state.

Among the awards were first place for Best Newscast, Best Longform Program, and Best TV Photojournalism. ISU students swept the photojournalism category. The winning newscast was for a piece that covered a fire at the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity last year.

The station’s “Ten on 10,” which covers entertainment news, captured the longform program award. A second place in the category was awarded for “The TV-10 SportsZone” program. A second and third place were given in the Best TV Spot category, with another second place win in the Best TV News Package category.
