Local TV stations win a whole bunch of regional Emmy Awards

A whole bunch of 2013 Rocky Mountain Emmy Awards were recently awarded to local UtahTV stations. Which is great. Congratulations to all the winners, drawn from Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming and El Centro, California.

There are tons of regional Emmys handed out to tons of people at tons of stations across the country. As you'll note, the categories are very different from the Prime Time Emmy Awards. And there are ties in many categories.

And not all stations participate, mostly because not all stations want to pay the fees required to submit entries. Which is worth keeping in mind.
