WPSU Penn State Emmy Award

Peggy Morgan, chair of the board of representatives for WPSU Penn State, is pictured holding the 2018 Mid-Atlantic Emmy Award for Overall Station Excellence presented to WPSU Penn State at the 2018 Mid-Atlantic Emmy awards celebration in October.

The Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the National Academy of Arts and Sciences, which represents Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and parts of West Virginia and Ohio, annually recognizes the top cultural, educational, technological, entertainment, news, informational programming and craft achievements in television and online.

WPSU competed against national network affiliate stations that hail from the top five media market (Philadelphia) and the top 23 media market (Pittsburgh). WPSU is in the 101st media market. WPSU-TV, a PBS member station, serves 24 counties in central Pennsylvania and reaches 515,000 households, and WPSU-FM, an NPR member station, is accessible to more than 450,000 listeners in 13 counties. The public media station also includes WPSU Digital Studios, which offers original web series that explore science, arts, and culture.

“We are deeply grateful to our WPSU board members who have assisted our station leadership team in advancing WPSU’s vision and strategy and inspiring our creativity. When we win an award of this magnitude, our board members win too, and so we were delighted to share the honor with Peggy and the other members of the Board at our November meeting,” said Tracey Huston, Vice President for Outreach.
