Hawaii TV teams score
in Emmy awards
Hawaii television stations scored several awards at this year's regional Emmys, winning a record six prizes for shows broadcast in 2001.
The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences awards for Northern California and Hawaii were held Saturday in San Francisco.
The awards went to:
Pamela Young of KITV for "Mixed Plate" in the Light News Feature Series category. This is Young's sixth award.
Stuart Yamane of KHET for "Journey of Honor" in the Documentary category.
Sharlene Saito Tam, Bob Loy, Jade Moon, Jim Mendoza, Kim Gennaula, Stacy Loe and Rob Young of KGMB for "Always Remember" in the Cultural Affairs Program category.
Gary Sprinkle of KITV for "Pacific Adventures: The Big Island" -- his third award -- and Sharie Shima of KHNL for "Surviving the Storm" in the Informational Program category.
Rodney Kobayakawa of Oceanic Cable for "OIA Football" in the Specialty-Technical category.
Young and Sprinkle are married, and this is the first time a local husband-and-wife team has taken home Emmy statuettes in the same year.
There were 56 Emmy awards in 48 categories, with 140 individual statues were awarded. San Francisco/Northern California is one of 18 chapters awarding local Emmys. Northern California is composed of television and cable stations from Visalia to the Oregon border and includes Hawaii and Reno.
