RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The NBC12 news and marketing teams won three Virginia Association of Broadcaster awards and three Promax Awards gold trophies recently.

On June 25, the NBC12 news team won “Best Station Promotion” and “Best Public Service/Community Event” at the 85th Annual Virginia Association of Broadcasters Summer Convention in Virginia Beach.

General Manager Kym Grinnage was also awarded the C. T. Lucy Distinguished Service Award at the convention. This award honors a broadcaster who spent a significant part of their career at one or more Virginia broadcasting properties and has been a leader in the broadcast industry in Virginia, an active participant in the VAB and involved in the community or political service.

That night, NBC12 picked up four Emmy Awards at the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, which was held in Maryland:

  • 12 News Today won for Best Morning Show
  • Kelly Avellino and AJ Nwoko won an Emmy for Finding Brittany Renee Williams 
  • The marketing department won two awards. One was Mason Adams for our promo of the Lee Statue coming down.  Pete George, Rob Edmonds, Mason Adams and Terrell Thompson also won Emmy awards for our news promo “More in the PM.”

Last week, the NBC12 marketing team also secured three gold trophies at the Promax Awards in Las Vegas - which is the world’s top prize for outstanding achievement in entertainment marketing and design.
