GSU receives 4 Emmy nominations

Georgia Southern University has received four 2014 Emmy Award nominations from the Southeast Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

The nominations are Best Student News Production, Best Student Production, Best Sports Director and Best Technical Director.

"We are very proud of our work and especially our student nominations. The work we produced this year for our sports is comparable to large network, Major League Baseball broadcasts," said Art Berger, the director of the Multimedia Development Center.

Berger received an Emmy Award nomination for Best Sports Director for his work with "Inside Georgia Southern Football." He also received a nomination for Best Technical Director for directing live Georgia Southern football games and for "Georgia Southern Baseball Live" with Ryan Chambers and Kris Draper.

Berger says that while he is proud of his nominations, the students are the ones who truly deserve the recognition.

"We are very proud of the talent and dedication of our students," Berger said. "Our student news which airs on compares to a CNN Headline newscast, and ‘Just Wild,' was a finalist this year in the MTV student video awards. I feel they have a really good chance."

The projects and students that received nominations were the "Saving Exotic Animals" episode of "Just Wild" by Allen Lincoln, AnnNell Byne, Jose Ocampo, Tim Hunt and Jake Taylor; and "Chomp the Gators and Gus in Space" by Lincoln, Sade Thomas, Wilson Brown, Evan Lebish, Robert O'Donnell, Tim Bragg and Cassandra Holmes.

The winners will be announced June 7 in Atlanta. The Southeast Chapter received more than 1,000 entries this year.
