Brigham Young University Broadcasting received a Regional Emmy Award at ceremonies in Phoenix, Ariz., for its program “Nexos” which airs Saturdays on BYUtv International.
The award was presented to Luiz Malaman, producer and creator, in the category of Special Program in Arts and Entertainment in the Rocky Mountain/Southwest region. The award is given for excellence in a regularly scheduled program or series on general entertainment, variety or performing arts.
“Being recognized by the industry is really good because it shows that the quality of the show is competing well with other shows out there,” said Malaman.
“Nexos” is a weekly 30-minute magazine-style program that features young hosts interacting with artists in the community and traveling to participate in different activities around the world. It demonstrates to viewers that they can be involved in the world and still keep their values and standards.
It was the only Spanish-speaking program nominated, along with three other English programs. The program has produced about 24 shows per season in its first two seasons.
