SEATTLE—KING 5 Television tops the Seattle marketplace with seventy-three Regional Emmy nominations, while NWCN earns two for political coverage.

The Northwest chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) nominated KING 5 for two overall awards; Station Excellence and Community Service. 
In individual categories, KING 5 photographers swept the competition for Photographer-News, garnering all four nominations. The KING 5 newsroom received multiple nominations in the News, Investigative, Feature, Political, Sports and Reporter categories.  While our Creative Services department pulled in nominations for Campaign and Single Spot promotions, and Evening Magazine was recognized for Special Event coverage and Health/Science reporting.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the work being generated by our team” said Ray Heacox, President and General Manager of KING.  “Serving and informing the public is at the core of our mission as broadcasters.  The goal isn’t to win awards, but it sure is nice to be recognized by our peers when it happens.” 

KING 5’s regional affiliate, NWCN, picked up two Emmy nominations for their political coverage.  A series of programs called “Race to the Wire” was nominated in addition to election night coverage in the Director category.
