Ohio Athletics Racks Up Multimedia Honors

June 8, 2010

ATHENS, OHIO-Ohio’s Director of Multimedia Marketing Evan Shaw and Director of Broadcasting and “Voice of the Bobcats” Russ Eisenstein were both honored this week.


Shaw won the Telly in the Silver category for Videography/Cinematography for his work during the 2009 football season. The Telly is a national award with over 13,000 entrants in the Silver and Bronze classifications and honors the very best local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions, and work created for the Web.


Shaw was also nominated for two Emmys this summer, one in the Sports Editor category for his editing work throughout the year. The other is in the Sports Feature category, which he shares with Eisenstein, for the “A Closer Look” segment, which recaps football games during the season.


“During our two years at Ohio, Evan and I have turned into a great team,” said Eisenstein. “We share the goal of making the broadcast presentation a product that is surpassed by none. The ‘Closer Look’ segments are an example of that vision. I hope the combination of his shooting and editing and my play-by-play yield another Emmy for Evan, and my first. It is an honor to be nominated.”


Earlier in the year, Shaw was nominated for a National Sports Emmy in the "Outstanding Camera Work" category for his work with NFL Films.


"I'm extremely honored to be nominated for these awards,” said Shaw. “I love working for Ohio Athletics, and having a chance to be recognized for my work is a really great feeling. I really appreciate Ohio Athletics for allowing me this opportunity. I'd like to especially thank Director of Athletics Jim Schaus and Associate AD for External Operations Dan Hauser for allowing me the freedom to do what I love.”


June’s nominations mark the fourth of Shaw’s career. He won in 2007 for Student Production for "Gridiron Glory" with WOUB and in 2009 for Sports Photography.
