For Excellence in Journalism


Here is the complete list of New England Emmy recipients, but we’ve highlighted the Connecticut winners below. Of note: Fox 61’s Jim Altman now has so many statues he can use them for doorstops throughout his house. And our deepest congratulations go to producer Tracy Furey and photog/editor Eric Budney of WFSB whose last story with their friend and colleague Denise D’Ascenzo was honored.
