Telemundo 52 KVEA won four awards at the 57th annual presentation of the Los Angeles Emmy Awards, for their excellence in news and sports. KVEA received awards for the following categories at the The Emmy Awards, held on August 27th:
- Medical, Cultural & Social News Story - Multi-Report for their report "Rostro de America"?
- Serious News Story - Single Report for their report "Ni?os Jornaleros"?
- Best News Writer, Diego Carro
- Juried Awards Winners - Sports Series for the report "Pie de Atleta"?
These news segments demonstrate the dedication of KVEA in offering its viewers stories that are informative and that connect them with the world and their community. For example the report "El Rostro de America," was the story of a four year old girl named America who arrived in Los Angeles in need of serious medical attention due to an enormous facial tumor called Hermangioma. America lived with her parents and four brothers in Ruiz, Nayarit, and was unable to get the medical attention she needed due to her families economic situation. Her outlook in Mexico was grim. Thankfully, Telemundo KVEA 52, promised to better her life and brought America to Los Angeles where she received the medical attention she needed -free of cost-. After four surgeries, Doctor James Bradley and his team at UCLA Medical Center were able to save America and give her a new face and a new future.
The next story "Ni?os Jornaleros? exposed agricultural companies who were violating the labor laws of Mexico and the United States. They where employing children to cultivate tomatoes and pickles which were sold in some of the biggest super markets in California.
"I am very proud of the accomplishments of our Los Angeles team," said Manuel Abud, Vice President and General Manager of KVEA. "These awards demonstrate that Telemundo is connecting with the Latino community and that we are able to give viewers stories that are interesting, informative and high quality."?
To add to KVEA's awards, Diego Carro won for "Best News Writer," for his work on several projects realized throughout the year.
The world of sports is also very important for KVEA, which was demonstrated with their report "Pie de Atleta," which won the Juried Awards Winners - Sports Series for the series of reports that followed runners in their preparation for the LA marathon. The series also gave advice on how to participate and the best to prepare for the marathon.
