WOUB Emmy Release
ATHENS, Ohio - Evan Shaw, Ohio Director of Multimedia Marketing, has been awarded an Emmy by the Ohio Valley Region of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for Outstanding Sports Editing. This award marks Shaw's fourth Emmy and third with Ohio Athletics.
Shaw was awarded an Emmy for sports videography in 2009 and for sports feature in 2010.
The Ohio Valley Region consists of television markets in Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Indiana. The award is a result of Shaw's editing during the Bobcats' 2010 athletics season.
"I'm extremely honored to receive this award, Shaw said. "My editing is something I have worked very hard on to improve the past couple years and it's always great to be recognized by your peers. I'd like to thank Dan Hauser, Jim Schaus and the entire Ohio Athletics staff for giving me the opportunity and freedom to do what I love. I'd also like to thank my wife Michelle for always being understanding and supportive. I'd also like to congratulate all the other winners from this past weekend from Ohio University. Ohio is a definitely a special place for television production."
Shaw is a Meigs County, Ohio native and 2007 graduate of Ohio's College of Communication. He 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 has now been nominated for eight Emmys in his career, while this weekend's honor marked his fourth win. 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. He has been nominated four times for a National Sports Emmy for work as part of a team with NFL Films.
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.
