NORFOLK – A graduate of Northeast Community College was part of a television news team that has earned a prestigious award.

Trevor Huber was a member of the crew at KTIV-TV in Sioux City, IA, to receive an Upper Midwest Emmy® Award for Newscast – Evening for its coverage of the “Argosy Casino vs. The Hard Rock.” Huber, a 2013 graduate of Northeast’s broadcasting program, was the audio board operator, one of several people involved in the report, to earn the honor. It was one of two awards the station received.


Bridget Breen, KTIV’s station manager and news director, said, “These awards are a true honor.” The 2014 National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Upper Midwest Emmy Awards were presented recently at Target Field in Minneapolis.
