KTSM was nominated Friday for two Regional Sports EMMYs from the Lone Star Emmy Chapter.

Defenseless: A KTSM Investigation is nominated in the News Single Story/Series category.   Full Court Press: One-On-One with Tim Floyd is nominated in the Interview/Discussion category. 

“I am humbled to be nominated for two Lone Start Sports EMMYs,” KTSM Sports Director Andy Morgan said.  “Highlighting the local sports scene is my passion and I pride myself on being able to tell the stories that impact our local sports community.”

“Defenseless” featured a three-month long investigation found nearly 40% of El Paso area high schools are using a helmet that tested so poorly that researchers determined no athlete should be using it. 

“I could not have put the helmet story together without Cesar Ruiz, who I share this nomination with,” Morgan said. “It’s important for me to start a discussion about how local high schools can do a better job to keep athletes safe.”

Ahead of the 2017-2018 season, KTSM sat down with then-head coach Tim Floyd to talk about rebounding from a less than stellar season the year before.

“At the time, fans either loved or didn’t really care for Tim Floyd. There was no in-between.  This story addressed the struggles college basketball coaches across the county are facing, including UTEP. I’d also like to thank our Chief Photographer, Danny Gallarzo, who is my co-nominee, for his help with this story.”

The 2018 Lone Star Regional Sports EMMY Awards will be held August 20 at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.
