On Saturday night, Valerie and I attended the New England Emmy Awards in Boston with my friends at WMUR-TV. The NH Idol episode of NH Chronicle that we did was nominated for an Emmy Award. The competition includes television stations and shows from all over New England, in a ton of different categories.
And when our category was announced- we WON! I was sitting across from my fellow Idol judge (and former Idol 3rd Place Runner Up) Alex Preston - and to see the shock on his face was priceless!
The award is a big deal. It symbolizes the great work that the staff of WMUR and NH Chronicle did in putting together that episode that featured tons of great singer/songwriters from across the state, the the production of the episode was first rate. It was chosen over some very formidable competition from Boston stations and beyond.
Here's the video from backstage - just after our win -
Congratulations to Erin Fehlau, Sean McDonald, Maryann Mrockza, Alisha McDevitt, Alex Preston, Chris Shepard, Paul Falco, Jim Breen, Brendan Cahoon, Todd Diorio for their hard work and professionalism on the show! It was an honor to be a part of it!

It was a very good night. THANKS so much to all the folks at WMUR/NH Chronicle!
