The November 19, 2015 newscast, anchored by Camille Delongis ’15 and Dominic Amato ‘16, directed by Adam Donnelly ‘16 and produced by Ryan Jenot ’16 received the Best College/University Newscast Emmy Award. This is the second year in a row News7 @ 5:30pm has won the regional NATAS student award for excellence in the college/university newscast category. Lyndon’s News7 has won seven of the NATAS student awards for excellence in all.
Reporter Alex Paduch ‘17 and Photojournalist JJ Murphy’s ‘16 piece titled “Wheeled Strikers” won in the General Assignment-Light News category edging out a story from Boston University. Video Journalist Taylor Young ‘15 received an honorable mention for her serious news piece called “The Story of Victory.”

Murphy will graduate in May and has already accepted a photographer’s position at WGHP 8 FOX, High Point, North Carolina.
Each year the Boston/New England Chapter honors outstanding student achievements in production by conferring awards of merit. The presentation of these awards is intended to be an incentive for the continued pursuit of excellence by those studying media and journalism and to focus public attention on outstanding cultural, educational, technological, entertain, news and informational achievements by students.
Student Winners will be invited to receive their awards at the 39th Boston/New England Emmy® Awards Ceremony on Saturday, June 4, 2016 at the Westin Copley Place Boston.
