The Lone Star Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences awarded NBC 5 and Telemundo 39 a total of 35 Lone Star Emmy® Awards, including the 'Overall Excellence' award for NBC 5 along with 'News Excellence' for Telemundo 39 during the 17th annual awards gala held Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019.

Tom Ehlmann, NBC 5 and Telemundo 39 President and General Manager accepted the 'Overall Excellence' award for NBC 5 and recognized the successful effort of both stations.  "Our teams work very hard to tell the stories of North Texans and provide the information they need to make their daily lives more livable – in both English and Spanish,' said Ehlmann.  "It’s rewarding for the teams when industry peers recognize our work with honors like the Lone Star Emmys.'

Telemundo 39 received 23 Emmy® awards across various categories including their third consecutive win in the 'News Excellence' category, plus top newscast awards for 'Morning/Daytime, Evening and Weekend.'

"We are particularly proud of being honored for 'News Excellence' once again this year and earning a record setting number of awards for Telemundo 39 overall," said Freddy Oldenburg, Telemundo 39 Vice President of News.

NBC 5 and Telemundo 39 were also awarded a Lone Star Emmy® in the 'Community Service' category in recognition of their collaborative work on Supporting Our Schools / Apoyando A Nuestras Escuelas, an annual school supply drive focused on raising awareness about classroom needs and what communities can do to help local students and teachers have the necessary resources for a successful school year.

In three categories: education, technology and talent-anchor-news, NBC 5 and Telemundo 39 dominated the competition by winning the Emmy for both English and Spanish-language.

"I'm proud of the consistent, high-level effort our teams put forth every day to keep our viewers informed," said John Stone, NBC 5 Vice President of News. "We never rest on our laurels, but earning a total of 13 Lone Star Emmys is a wonderful sign of success for our staff."
