NBC 5's Amy Sillan, Director, Integrated Marketing Solutions, will receive a national Gracie Award for her contribution to the station's "Courageous Kids" series shining a light on the achievements of children living with a health challenge or special need.
In news stories and across all of NBC 5's digital platforms, "Courageous Kids" showcased remarkable North Texas kids doing extraordinary things despite having a disability or life-threatening illness. With guidance from medical experts in children's health, NBC 5 focused on a child's achievements rather than leading with their disability or illness.
The latest news from around North Texas.
"These amazing stories would not have been told if it wasn't for Amy's leadership, creativity, and heart," said Tom Ehlmann, NBC 5 and Telemundo 39 President and General Manager. "Amy guided a large, station-wide team in making two years of 'Courageous Kids' possible."
The Gracie Awards are presented by the Alliance for Women in Media, a foundation honoring outstanding programming by, for and about women. Sillan will be presented the award on June 26 in New York City.
