NMSU's Joe Brackman wins Emmy

Not many people receive the honor of being nominated for an Emmy award, but New Mexico State University's Joe Brackman of AggieVision, was not only nominated but won the award Oct. 9 at the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. He received the award in the interview/discussion-program/special or series category.

This was Brackman's first nomination and win. He beat out three other contestants in his category from Brigham Young University, Arizona State University and Fox Sports Arizona.

Brackman's piece was titled "Conversations in Black History." It brought light to how few black coaches are in college and professional sports. He interviewed coaches at NMSU about why they feel it is so difficult for blacks to get these positions and how they got to where they were themselves. The topic was in honor of Black History Month.

"It's great recognition for the work we're doing at AggieVision and KRWG. I'm very appreciative to all of the people at AggieVision and KRWG who helped make the show come to life, and to Dr. Boston and the three coaches who were willing to be interviewed," Brackman said.
