CSN celebrates several emmy winners
The last champions to be crowned in Baltimore were the Ravens, but on Saturday night, Comcast SportsNet brought home the hardware in Charm City.
Comcast SportsNet’s Emmy Awards – which include three honors for its coverage of the Washington Redskins – were earned for live sporting event (Redskins preseason game), daily/weekly sports program (Redskins Kickoff), one-time sports special (RGIII: Mission Possible) and sports program promo (Capitals playoffs), as well as individual categories for sports anchor (Michael Jenkins) and sports play-by-play/analyst (Trevor Matich).
For Jenkins, the honor marks his fourth individual award and Matich brings home his fifth since 2007.
Comcast SportsNet’s coverage of Washington Redskins preseason games, in conjunction with the Redskins Broadcast Network, won a second consecutive Emmy as the region’s top live sporting event. The network has earned the top honor in this category eight times since 2001, including four of the last five years. Previous live sporting event awards have been won by Comcast SportsNet for its coverage of the Redskins (2011), Washington Capitals (2010, 2008, 2005, 2004), Baltimore Orioles (2003) and Washington Wizards (2001).
