Portland Press Herald’s Amelia Kunhardt ’83 Wins Emmy Award (The Newspaper Guild)

EmmyAwardEmmy’s aren’t just for TV anymore. Amy Kunhardt ’83 recently won a Boston/New England regional Emmy award for her story “Three Shots on Roy Road,” which reported on a shooting incident involving a local police officer. This is the second Emmy that Kunhardt has won, following one she earned for a story about a man losing 100 pounds. Her entry was part of the “Societal Concerns” category, and she is self-taught in video editing. The story was accompanied by a print article by reporter Matt Bryne. Though the number of Emmys awarded to newspapers is still small in comparison with those awarded to TV stations, Kunhardt expects that these numbers will continue to grow.
