Memories were made when 342 Emmy® statues were handed out to 244 people in recognition of hard work, creativity and television excellence! It was one for the record books.
A sold-out crowd of 600 people packed the Hilton San Francisco Union Square Grand Ballroom on June 3, for the 52nd Annual Northern California Area Emmy® Awards 2022-2023.
It was thrilling to see the smiling faces, hear the personal stories and share the stage with talented professionals.
Highlights this year included a giant replica Emmy® statue, a 360 camera for fun photos, a comedian, and celebratory glasses of sparkling wine. Make sure to check out the photos from the event taken by our five photographers here as well as the livestream broadcast recording.
It was truly a night of excitement, laughter and comradery among colleagues, markets and our Chapter’s region. Thank you to everyone who attended and congratulations to all of the Emmy®️ recipients!
Among them, Victor Nieto, KCRA 3, Sacramento, took home six awards. Johnathon Bartell and Rory Ward of ABC 10 KXTV, Jason Marks of KCRA 3, and Samuel Potter of Frist Light Media all received five. Also with five, topping the Spanish contest, Andea Igliozzi, KUVS Univision 19 followed by Christian Vázquez-Garcia, also from Univision 19, with four. The full list can be found here.
While the Emmy® is awarded to individuals, there is competition among stations. Sacramento outdid the San Francisco stations this year with 15 for KCRA 3/Estrella TV, and 12 for ABC 10 KXTV. The Spanish contest was split with seven each for KUVS Univision 19, Sacramento and Telemundo Area de la Bahia KSTS in San Jose. I can’t wait to see what stations are going to come out on top next year!
I was truly honored to present the prestigious Governors’ Award to Pamela Young, a journalist, producer, program host and Chapter Trustee from KHON in Hawaii. It’s the highest honor a regional chapter can award for years of service and valuable contributions. I also presented Past President Randy Forsman with the Presidential Emmy® and lifetime gold membership card. Both Young and Foresman have been instrumental in guiding and leading our Chapter and volunteering their time and energy for the benefit of all members. Additionally, the Governors’ Service Medallion was bestowed upon Susan A. Bradley of Susan A. Bradley Photography and Devin Fehely of CBS Bay Area KPIX.

This year, comedian Gina Stahl-Haven cracked some jokes to keep things entertaining as the mistress of ceremonies. And Michael Hatfield jumped in with his music to play on and off presenters and recipients. A big thank you to Len Ramirez of CBS Bay Are KPIX who announced and pronounced with precision all of this year’s nominees.
Behind the scenes, Executive Director Darryl Compton produced the show with Past President Randy Foresman stepping in to direct in a pinch. Video production was done by San Francisco Media Group with editing by Activities/Programs Chair Steve Shlisky and graphics by Paula Marcheschi of KGO ABC7. Hats off to all of them and the Board of Governors’ members who stepped up to make the night possible!
