The Tennessee Valley's PBS television affiliate, WTCI, is bringing home some hardware.
"One With Courage," a three-minute, 40-second video imploring Tennesseans to stand against child abuse, won the Midsouth regional Emmy Award for best community/public service spot Saturday night at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville.
Emily Compton of WTCI accepted the award that she and Peter DeLynn, the late former WTCI senior vice president of production and operations, were nominated for.
In a brief acceptance speech, Compton expressed gratitude to the Children's Advocacy Center of Hamilton County, her parents and DeLynn.
"Most importantly, I'd like to thank Peter DeLynn, who was the executive producer on this project and unfortunately passed away in October. Peter, this is for you," Compton said in a video of the ceremony posted online.
The video was among three nominated in its category.
WTCI serves more than 1 million viewers in a 35-county area each week.
