A reader sent in this video from an award ceremony for the Heartland regional Emmy’s. In the longer clip (a portion of which is excerpted here for your viewing pleasure), there are all sorts of nominees from my native state of Colorado. I guess we’re Heartland.
Anyway, among the various awards distributed, there’s one given for Performer/Narrator of a broadcast segment. The first two nominees are for performers with KAKE-TV in Wichita and Plum TV in Telluride. But the winner is one Vida Urbonis with KRDO-TV. Congratulations Ms. Urbonis!
The awards ceremony features a clip from the winning entry in which we hear narrator Urbonis say:
“Mike Jones, a gay escort, came out with allegations of gay sex and drugs . . .
Haggard initially denied the charges but later admitted to the sexual immortality.
He received a payment of $300,000 from New Life. He and his family then moved away and agreed to lay low.”
Now, I don’t think that Haggard admitted to what Jones claimed, per se, so the use of “the” is misleading.
But what was that? Did someone just get a narration Emmy for claiming that Ted Haggard admitted to sexual immortality?
