Weekly Series Broad & High Receives Recognition for Fourth Time

WOSU Public Media received three Emmy® Awards Saturday evening from the Ohio Valley Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The chapter presents the prestigious Emmy Awards to television professionals in 13 markets from four states.

At the 54th Annual Ohio Valley Regional Emmy Awards the arts and culture weekly series, Broad & High, was recognized in the Magazine Program category for the fourth time and a segment from the program highlighting the Wounded Warrior Dogs Project for Magazine Feature/Segment; artist profiles for the Greater Columbus Arts Council’s Art Makes Columbus/Columbus Makes Art Campaign won for Best Community/Public Service (PSA).

The weekly magazine show, Broad & High, is the ultimate intersection of arts and culture in Columbus. Currently seen Thursday nights at 8pm on WOSU TV, Broad & High is a half-hour program that features segments of national interest, but focuses on the character and creativity of Columbus.

Major funding for Broad & High is provided by the Greater Columbus Arts Council. The Art Makes Columbus/Columbus Makes Art series is a community-wide arts sector marketing campaign, developed with the intention to raise awareness of the incredible artistic talent in Columbus and the diverse offerings of arts and cultural organizations. For the campaign, WOSU Productions developed more than 12 profiles of local artists and performers.
