The Southeast Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) nominated 'Today in Georgia History' for two regional Emmy awards.

The nominations are for writer Dr. Stan Deaton, and producers Keocia Howard, Don Smith and Bruce Burkhardt in the categories of Outstanding Achievement: Television News and Program Specialty Excellence, Historic/Cultural and, Outstanding Achievement: Television Crafts Achievement Excellence, respectively.

The program is a joint production of the Georgia Historical Society and Georgia Public Broadcasting. These are the first Emmy nominations for Today in Georgia History since it began airing in September 2011.

"The nomination itself is an honor because it is validation by peers in the broadcast industry that Today in Georgia History is a program of high quality and lasting value," said Dr. Stan Deaton, Senior Historian for the Georgia Historical Society and Host of Today in Georgia History.

The Emmys will be presented at the annual gala, Saturday, June 8, at the Grand Hyatt Buckhead in Atlanta, GA.
