June 13, 2011

ATHENS, Ohio-Evan Shaw, Ohio's Director of Multimedia Marketing, has been nominated for another Emmy by the Ohio Valley Region of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for Sports Editing.


Shaw has now been nominated for eight Emmys in his career. As a student at Ohio, he won an Emmy for his work as Director on WOUB's "Gridiron Glory," a program covering high school football in Southeastern Ohio. In 2009, he won in the category of Outstanding Sports Videography and he paired with Ohio Director of Broadcasting and "Voice of the Bobcats" Russ Eisenstein in 2010 to take top honors in the Sports Feature category. He has also been nominated for a National Sports Emmy four times for work as part of a team with NFL Films.


The Ohio Valley Region consists of television markets in Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Indiana.


Shaw is a Meigs County, Ohio native and 2007 graduate of Ohio's College of Communication. While at Ohio, he was an active member of Ohio's student section, The O Zone.


He also won the Telly in the Silver category for Videography/Cinematography for his work during the 2009 football season and again in the Bronze category for Sports for his production of the Wofford (football) motivational video. He has also served as a mentor for BobcatTV Assistant Producer Ashley Hartzell, who captured a Telly in the Silver category for Sports for her highlight package on Ohio wide receiver Terrence McCrae. 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.


He also finished third in NACMA's (National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators) contest for Best Video Board segment for his work on the intro video that was featured prior to Ohio's men's basketball showdown versus arch-rival Miami on Feb. 24, 2010.


Shaw began shooting football as an undergraduate for WOUB in Athens. His career in sports television has taken him from the football fields of rural Southeastern Ohio all the way to Super Bowl Sunday. In addition to his duties with Ohio, Shaw also patrols the sidelines of professional games every week for NFL Films as a ground cinematographer.


Shaw's work for Ohio can be seen on BobcatTV, Ohio Athletics' official free video platform. His work for the NFL can be seen on major national networks such as ESPN, Showtime and NBC.


"I am extremely proud of Ashley's award," said Shaw. "She has been a tremendous asset for Ohio Athletics, and we can't thank her enough for all she did this past year. Ashley began working for BobcatTV while she was a student at Ohio and I'm amazed at how far she's come in the past couple years."


Ohio's 2011 football season will get underway on Saturday, Sept. 3 when the program travels to New Mexico State.
