OKLAHOMA NEEDS YOUR HELP!

Our prayers go out to those members and their families affected by the tornadoes in Oklahoma. In solidarity with these people, we ask that you donate whatever you can to aid in their recovery, be it money, food or clothing. The AFL-CIO recommends donating directly to the United Way of Central Oklahoma, which you can do by clicking here.

WUSA Leads Nominations for Local Emmys in D.C.

On May 13, the 2012 local Emmy nominations were announced for the National Capital Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. While WUSA had the most nominations for D.C. stations with 17, many other SAG-AFTRA stations were also honored with nominations in both D.C. and Baltimore. WBAL, WETA, WJLA/News Channel 8, WJZ, WMAR, WRC and WTTG all received nominations this year.

The Local Emmys are presented annually to recognize excellence in television programming. This year, the National Capital Chesapeake Bay Chapter’s awards will be held on June 15 at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel. We wish all of our members the best of luck!
