NASHVILLE LIVE!

About the Artist
Phil Ponder introduced other skyline views of Nashville in 1982, 1986 and 1990. In the last 15 years, nearly fifty of his originals have been reproduced in limited edition prints. The combination of exacting details, bright colors, interesting shapes and varied architectural styling produces a special warmth in the pen and ink/watercolor process utilized by the artist.

EMMY USAGE-TRADEMARK POLICY
,


Policy Regarding the Use of: Trademarks, EMMY® statue(ette), and Clips from EMMY® Award Shows


I. TRADEMARK USE GUIDELINES
A. Consistent and Proper Use

The trademarks of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, also known as National Television Academy (“NATAS/NTA”) are valuable assets. Proper and consistent use of such trademarks is vital so that those marks maintain their value and NATAS/NTA may protect its legal rights in ownership of those marks.
Therefore, please familiarize yourself with, and abide by, the following use guidelines. Always follow these rules when using the National Television Academy trademarks:
1. Use trademarks as adjectives. Trademarks are adjectives, not nouns or verbs, and should always be followed by a noun.
Correct: Emmy® award
Emmy® award ceremony
Incorrect:
The Emmy’s.
2. Never use trademarks in plural or possessive form.
Correct: Two Emmy® statuettes.
Incorrect: Two Emmy’s
3. Set trademarks apart from other words or the nouns they modify. Methods of distinguishing a mark include printing it in capitals, italicized text, using bold faced text, title case (providing that the surrounding text is not also in title case) and/or putting the mark in “quotation marks.”
Examples: the EMMY® award ceremony
the Emmy® award ceremony
the “Emmy” ® award ceremony
4. Never use any other trademark in conjunction with a National Television Academy trademark without express authorization from the National Television Academy.
5. Use the appropriate trademark symbol in the proper place and give proper attribution. While it is not always practical or feasible to use the appropriate trademark notice with every use of a word mark, try to use the appropriate symbol whenever the mark is displayed prominently and in the first occurrence of the mark in text on each page, including web pages. If the trademark consists of a logo or a design, the appropriate trademark notice should appear with every use of the logo or design.
B. Appropriate Symbols
® = registered trademark (a mark used in connection with goods) or service mark (a mark used in connection with services)
TM = trademark ownership claimed but mark is not registered
SM = service mark ownership claimed but mark is not registered
Correct: Emmy® Awards
SILVER CIRCLE® Program
C. Disclaimer
Acknowledge National Television Academy’s ownership of its trademarks. The following language should be included on all websites and materials that display National Television Academy trademarks:
“Use of the trademarks and service marks of the National Television Academy (“NATAS/NTA”), including the mark EMMY®, requires the prior express written permission of the National Television
Academy.”
D. Fair Use of Emmy Trademark
1. Note that while permission is required to use the National Television Academy trademarks in connection with products and services, others are allowed to make “fair use” of the mark to identify the
products and services of the National Television Academy. For example, a winning television show, may fairly advertise that it has won an EMMY® award.
E. Alteration
1. Never alter National Television Academy trademarks, including designs, colors, etc. without express written authorization from the National Television Academy.
F. Inappropriate Use
1. Never use National Television Academy trademarks in jokes, puns or in a derogatory fashion.
2. Notify the National Television Academy of any improper use of any of its trademarks. Report as much detail as possible about the misuse, including the name of the party, contact information, and copies or photographs of the potential misuse.
G. Subject to Change
1. Always follow all applicable marketing and legal guidelines. From time to time, the National Television Academy may modify these written guidelines making it imperative to review all updates. At all times, you are subject to the prevailing guidelines currently in effect.

II. PROTECTION OF THE EMMY® STATUE(ETTE)
A. The Emmy® statue(ette) is the property of and all rights are reserved by the National Television Academy;
B. The Emmy® statue(ette) may not be reproduced or used in any commercial manner unless permitted by the National Television Academy, it being understood that possession of the same is solely for the benefit of the recipient and the recipient’s heirs or successors in interest.
C. If a recipient or the recipient’s heir or successor in interest proposes to sell or otherwise dispose of the Emmy® statue(ette), such persons shall be obligated to return the statue(ette) to the National Television Academy which will retain the same in storage in memory of the recipient.

III. USE OF EXCERPTS FROM EMMY® AWARDS SHOW
A. Clips from EMMY® Awards Shows may be used in news broadcasts to report on said awards shows. The policies governing such uses are as follows:
1. The clips are to be used only in the segment of the broadcaster’s news program that covers the EMMY® Awards ceremony.
2. Aggregate length of all clips in a news program is not to exceed one (1) minute.
3. Clips are not to be aired as a part of a news program in any time zone until completion of the airing of the EMMY® Awards shows in that time zone.
4. The broadcaster must assume all responsibility for obtaining union and/or music clearances, and must secure the consent of the network which broadcasts the show. The broadcaster must indemnify NATAS/NTA and ATAS against any claims. See Exhibit A (attached).
B. Other Use of Excerpts:
1. Clips from EMMY® Awards shows may be used in news stories (in addition to those covered under section A above) which relate to a recipient of an award upon his or her death.
1. Clips from EMMY® Awards shows may be used in retrospectives and similar shows dealing with the careers of recipients.
3. Clips from EMMY® Awards shows may be used in other awards shows.
4. Clips may not be used in entertainment-type shows.
C. Programs other than current news shows in which clips are used may be broadcast and rebroadcast without limitation. NATAS/NTA and ATAS would also agree that, in most cases, it is proper to allow usage of those clips in after-market applications, e.g., a retrospective of an artist which is first broadcast on television then released on home video.
D. Permission for use of clips (in shows other than news) must be obtained in each instance from NATAS/NTA and ATAS. The party seeking permission is responsible for securing any necessary union or music clearances. A copy of the standard form used in connection with EMMY® Awards Shows for this purpose is attached as Exhibit B. Please note that in the form, in some cases where NATAS/NTA or ATAS is dealing with a recognized company, there is an alternate paragraph that contains an indemnity against union and music claims, as opposed to a provision requiring the proposed user to obtain the clearances.
E. Use of Excerpts in Commercials:
1. It is felt that this type of use would dilute the value of the EMMY®. Accordingly, unless the Board of Trustees were to grant a waiver in a specific instance, excerpts from EMMY® Awards Shows may not be used in commercials.

IV. USE OF THE EMMY® NAME AND EMMY® STATUE(ETTE) IN ADVERTISING AND PUBLICITY
A. EMMY® Winners:
1. EMMY® Winners may at any time refer in advertising and publicity to the fact that they have won an EMMY® and may, for one year after the Award is won, use a replica of the statue(ette) in such advertising.
2. NATAS/NTA and ATAS are currently receiving requests for use of the statue(ette) on video cassettes of EMMY®-winning Shows. It is the policy of NATAS/NTA and ATAS that the statue(ette) may not be used on video cassette/disc copies of EMMY®-winning Shows. However, reference may be made in the printed material on the cover to the effect that the show is an EMMY® winner.
B. Sponsors of EMMY® shows:
1. In the past, we have allowed sponsors of EMMY® Awards Shows to use a copy of the EMMY® Statuette and the EMMY® name in both print and point-of-sale advertising, provided that (i) the advertising occurred at or about the time of broadcast of the Show, and (ii) the advertising made specific reference to their sponsorship of the Show.
C. Advertiser’s Use of Clips from Shows in Advertising:
1. Unless the Board of Trustees were to grant a waiver, clips from an EMMY® show (i.e., a clip showing someone winning an EMMY® award or a clip of someone wearing the advertiser’s product at the Show) may not be used in advertising.
D. Network / Station Uses:
1. Networks and local television stations may use the EMMY® name and EMMY® statue(ette) with appropriate copyright and trademark notices in connection with promotional announcements for programs
which, in fact, have won the EMMY® award, as long as it is done within one (1) year after the Award has been won and not thereafter.
2. Networks and local stations may announce the fact that they have won national EMMY® Awards or regional EMMY® Awards, as the case may be, by showing replicas of the statue(ette) and may refer to the name of NATAS/NTA or ATAS. Appropriate copyright and trademark notices should be affixed to any replicas of the statue(ette) as outlined above.

V. OTHER USES OF THE EMMY® NAME OR THE EMMY® STATUE(ETTE)
A. In Television Programs or Movies:

1. The EMMY® statue(ette) may be used as a prop in a program or movie as long as the use is not in any way derogatory to the statue(ette) and that the statue(ette) is an incidental part of the same.
B. In Published Works, etc.:
1. The EMMY® name and/or statue(ette) may be used in connection with printed works provided that the work is of an educational or informational nature, and the reference to the EMMY® name or statuette is
non-derogatory and is reasonably related to the purpose of the published work.
2. EMMY® winners are permitted to use pictures of themselves receiving the EMMY® award in personal resumes and self-promotion.
3. Pictures of EMMY® winners receiving their statue(ette)s may also be used in printed materials featuring biographical material about such winner, provided that the use is reasonably related to the biographical material, e.g., use of a picture of an EMMY® winner in a souvenir program of a stage play in which the EMMY® winner appears, use in biographical articles about the winner, etc.
4. We have received requests from corporate EMMY® winners to use replicas of the EMMY® on stationery and the like. Although EMMY® winners may make textual reference to the fact that they have won an EMMY® award, they may not use replicas of the EMMY® statue(ette) for this purpose.
C. Merchandising:
1. The EMMY® name and EMMY® statue(ette) may not be used in connection with merchandising items except with prior approval of the Board of Trustees. If any proposed merchandising uses are to be approved, that proposal must be coordinated with NATAS/NTA and ATAS.

Projects may be entered in more than one category (for example, an entry may be eligible for entry in both Writing and Long Form.)

COLUMN: WHAT WOULD NETFLIX DO?
By Daisy Whitney, TV WEEK, 2/22/09
Influential media blogger Jeff Jarvis’ recently released book “What Would Google Do?” suggests that businesses can look to the search giant’s success as an example of how to approach the future. But I think the key question for media companies is, what would Netflix do?
SEE IT NOW Netflix has over 12,000 titles available on its "Watch Instantly" feature.
Netflix is a company that made some big stumbles in new media but then got its act together. Now it’s one of the few companies that’s not just outperforming the market (admittedly, that’s not hard to do now), but is acting as if it’s leading a bull market.Netflix is a model of relentless innovation, which is why media companies should look to emulate what Netflix has done in the last year.
I don’t mean copy Netflix. Instead, television networks, studios, online media companies and advertisers should study how Netflix has molded its business to the changing consumer and ask how they can do the same for their businesses.Here’s why. With its core DVD-mail business, Netflix is based on one of the oldest of old mediums—the U.S. Mail. But the company’s fortunes are skyrocketing now that it has added multiple paths to broadband viewing. Those include its “Watch Instantly” feature that allows users to stream more than 12,000 titles on their computers, Xboxes, Roku boxes or LG and Samsung TVs right away.That’s the key to the company’s success. Netflix shifted quickly to serve the instant-gratification needs of broadband video consumers, meeting them where they are. The results speak for themselves. Earlier this month, Netflix said it passed the 10 million-subscriber mark after adding 600,000 new subscribers in the first six weeks of this year alone. That’s after posting a 45% profit in the fourth quarter, based on adding 718,000 new customers that quarter, more than double what the company expected. Read full article at

BROADCAST TV FACES STRUGGLE TO STAY VIABLE
By Tim Arango, The New York Times, February 28, 2009
CBS, home to “60 Minutes,” the “CSI” franchise, “Two and a Half Men” and the new hit crime drama “The Mentalist,” is having a better year in prime time than any other network. And yet, as at the other networks, profits have declined sharply at CBS. For decades, the big three, now big four, networks all had the same game plan: spend many millions to develop and produce scripted shows aimed at a mass audience and national advertisers, with a shelf life of years or decades as reruns in syndication. But that model, based on attracting enough ad dollars to cover the costs of shows like “Lost” and “ER,” no longer appears viable. Network dramas now cost about $3 million an hour. The future for the networks, it seems, is more low-cost reality shows, more news and talk, and a greater effort to find new revenue streams, whether they be from receiving subscriber fees as cable channels do, or becoming cable networks themselves, an idea that has gained currency. The last bastion of the big network audience is the Super Bowl and other live events like the Grammy Awards and the Academy Awards. The rub is that those have traditionally been viewed as promotional outlets for a network’s other shows, and rarely make money themselves. Ratings over all for broadcast networks continue to decline, making it harder for them to justify their high prices for advertising. Cable channels are spending more on original shows, which bring in new viewers and dampen their appetites for buying repeats of broadcast shows.
For the networks, the crisis is twofold: cultural and financial. For viewers, the result is more low-cost reality shows, prime-time talk and news programs and sports from the institutions that once made “Hill Street Blues,” “All in the Family” and “Cheers.”
NBC’s decision to move Jay Leno to a Monday-through-Friday slot at 10 p.m. eliminates the chance of the network developing another “ER” for that hour, but it will save the network tens of millions of dollars.

CMT’S PHILIPS PROMOTED TO PRESIDENT
By Danny King, TV WEEK, 3/3/08

WSMV'S BACK-OFFICE OPERATIONS WILL MOVE TO ATLANTA
By Getahn Ward, The Tennessean, March 7, 2009
The parent company of WSMV-TV, Channel 4 [Nashville] plans to consolidate back-office functions from its three TV stations in the South into a new hub in Atlanta. An unspecified number of the 152 employees at the local NBC affiliate in Nashville will lose their jobs, said Jen Harken, a spokeswoman for the broadcasting group. The local station is owned by Des Moines, Iowa-based Meredith Corp., which owns 12 television stations overall and other interests. Atlanta is Meredith's largest media market. It owns WGCL-TV there. The move will involve master control, traffic, research and business office functions such as accounting and payroll in Nashville, Greenville, S.C., and Atlanta. The switch should be completed by mid-July, Harken said. "There's been some technological advancements that have made centralizing and consolidating even less complicated and more cost-effective," she said. "It'll really be a transparent transition for the viewers. They would have no idea." Meredith joins other broadcasting chains, including Young Broadcasting Inc., owner of local ABC affiliate WKRN-TV, Channel 2, in combining certain functions. "These companies had all these little separate business functions at local stations because they could afford it," said Ed Atorino, a media analyst with The Benchmark Co. in New York. "Now with the pressure on the top line, they're finding ways to save some money," Atorino said. By February, Meredith expects to have a second hub in Phoenix covering its operations in Las Vegas and Portland, Ore.

* TODD JARRELL
Methamphetamine is a familiar topic to writer/producer Todd Jarrell. A resident of Cookeville, Tennessee, the primary location for this film and the hub of the Upper Cumberland mountain area, Jarrell watched a meth crisis grow from a few early print stories in the local Herald Citizen to a social issue garnering the attentions of the national press. First reporting on the home made drug in 2004 for Nashville’s WPLN (NPR), Jarrell’s public radio series In Meth’s Grip garnered three national awards and was cited by Public Radio News Directors Inc. as the “most comprehensive, listen-able, and eye-opening coverage of the meth problem we have heard to date.” Following that series, Nashville’s WKRN NEWS 2 (ABC) invited Jarrell to collaborate on exploring Tennessee’s meth problem in a one-hour prime time news special. The ensuing, Meth In Tennessee, was nominated for the 2006 National EMMY in Community Service.
Jarrell’s previous television work includes the PBS feature Tree Safari: A Sculptural Journey, (PBS) filmed in South Africa on the mythic and medicinal aspects of sculptor Brad Sells’ exotic wood medium. Change of Heart, examining one spiritual young man’s work with Cape Town’s street children. Now in production are The Koa Connection, the second of the Tree Safari series and TUBA U: Basso Profundo, which follows an unlikely ensemble to Carnegie Hall.
Jarrell’s audio work includes the award-winning audiobook Slow Dance with the Planet (HighBridge), and features for All Things Considered; Weekend America; The World; The Savvy Traveler; Great Lakes Radio Consortium; CBC Radio One (Canada); Radio Netherlands World Service; andBBC Radio 4. Print/Internet features include: National Geographic News; CNN.com; Hemispheres (USA), Wingspan (Japan), Traditional Boats and Tall Ships (UK), Houston Chronicle, New Orleans’ Times Picayune, andCanada’s national daily The Globe and Mail.

The National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) turned to Pat to teach at national conferences, where he taught and mentored countless photojournalists, video editors and reporters. His work stretches from documentaries that saved an inner city preschool in Nashville to major works shot in the slums of Haiti, the former Yugoslavia, and the glory of the Olympics in Athens.”

21st ANNUAL EMMY® AWARDS PRESS RELEASE
,


The Nashville/Midsouth Chapter of The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) presented the 21st Annual Midsouth Regional Emmy® Awards on January 27. Searchlights led the way from the Hilton Nashville Downtown, the academy’s official hotel, to the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Inside, the Laura Turner Concert Hall was filled with 460 in attendance for the gala. The formal dinner was accented by white orchid and elephant grass centerpieces.

The telecast was hosted by Joe Elmore for the sixth year. Joe is also host/producer of Tennessee Crossroads on public television, and Horsepower TV on Spike TV. BellSouth, now AT&T;, was the primary telecast sponsor. The nearly 700 entries were judged by the Northwest Chapter, based in Seattle. Their ballots were tabulated by Kurt Vitolo of the KV Financial Group, resulting in 267 nominations. Awards were presented in 59 categories, and a complete list of winners follows.

The academy’s highest honor, The Governors’ Award for Lifetime Achievement, was presented to Anne Holt of WKRN Nashville, presented by Laura Faber, anchor at Fox 17 WZTV, and NATAS Alternate National Trustee
After 30 years in news, Anne Holt is more than a familiar face, she is a trusted friend. A three-time Emmy Award winning journalist and recipient of the coveted George Foster Peabody Award for the investigative documentary Under the Influence, Anne is recognized by her peers through out the Mid South as an outstanding role model. Anne was one of 13 children born to a family of sharecroppers in west Tennessee. She received her education from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and immediately went to work for the local television station, WATE. Anne moved to Nashville in 1976, and went to work for WKRN News 2 as a reporter and weekend anchor. In 1980, Anne became primary anchor. She has received countless awards and honors including the Jerry Thompson Communicator's "Lifetime Achievement Award" from NCCJ; the Donald G. Hileman Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Tennessee College of Communications, and the Distinguished Service Award from the Tennessee Association of Broadcasters. With that honor, Anne earned the distinction of being the first woman, the first African American and the first news anchor to receive the award. In addition to her anchoring duties at News 2, Anne serves as spokesperson for News 2's "Food to Families" campaign. A sorting room at the Second Harvest Food Bank was named the "Anne Holt Room,” reflecting Anne's years of dedication to helping feed hungry families in Middle Tennessee. Anne has served on the boards of NCCJ, Book'em, Leadership Nashville, Cumberland Valley Girl Scouts, Middle Tennessee March of Dimes, Inroads/Nashville, Inc., the United Way of Middle Tennessee; the Honorary Leadership Committee for the Nashville Chamber of Commerce's Partnership 2000 Project and numerous nonprofit fundraising committees. In November 2006, Anne was appointed to the Board of Trustees of the University of Tennessee by Gov. Phil Bredesen

The academy posthumously inducted Dana Kaye, former reporter at NewsChannel 5 WTVF Nashville, and Stuart Grasberg, former producer/director at WTVI Charlotte, into the Silver Circle, honoring quarter-century contributions to broadcasting. Both were vibrant members of their stations and communities, and their loss has been deeply felt.

Dana Kaye was inducted by Phillip L. Bell, Earnhardt Pirkle, Inc. and NATAS National Trustee. Phil and Dana had been colleagues at NewsChannel 5 WTVF.
Dana Kaye was born into an Air Force family in Montgomery, Alabama. As a child, she lived in half a dozen states. Because of her military up-bringing, Dana dreamed of being a war correspondent. That dream came true when she was chosen to be an embedded journalist with the 101st Airborne during 'Operation Iraqi Freedom'. She traveled with the 3rd Brigade Rakkasans to Kuwait and then across the border into Iraq the night of the U.S. invasion. Dana sent back more than 50 reports during her 6-weeks with the Raider Rakkasans. In 2001, Dana also traveled with the Screaming Eagles from Fort Campbell on 'Assignment: Afghanistan'. Dana filed dozens of reports from the war zone, spending the night in foxholes and following troops on long-range patrols into enemy territory. She also covered the conditions in downtown Kandahar where civilians have lived with war for 30 years. While there, Dana began a campaign to collect school supplies for the children of Kandahar who were eager to go back to school. Because of Dana’s efforts, NewsChannel 5 collected more than 500,000 pencils for the kids in Kandahar. Dana loved the broadcasting business. Her first job was as a radio traffic reporter in Monroe, Louisiana. There weren’t many traffic tie-ups in Monroe, so Dana moved to Baton Rouge to become a TV reporter at WVLA. She became the station's top investigative reporter before moving to KLTV in Tyler, Texas. In Texas, Dana anchored the 6 and 10 o'clock news, and did in-depth special reports. She moved back to Baton Rouge for a couple of years before finally making her home in Nashville in 1995. Dana was married to District Attorney General Dan Alsobrooks. She had one daughter, 17-year old Alden Allen.

Stuart Grasberg was inducted by Steve Crump of WBTV and NATAS Nashville/Midsouth Vice President, who worked on many documentaries with Stuart at WTVI.
An expert craftsman who brought passion and focus to his work and sincerity to his friendships -- that is the sentiment from co-workers and colleagues in remembrance of long-time WTVI employee, senior producer/director Stuart Grasberg who passed away July 18, 2006. Thirty years ago, Stuart was hired as an intern by Geneva Brignolo at WCVB Boston, on the Good Day! show. He joined WTVI in 1985 as producer/director. Many station viewers never saw the face behind the voice, but Stuart was a station fixture with his voice-overs that became a WTVI symbol. Stuart’s generosity, dedication and love of the arts truly made a difference in the lives of people, but also to the cause of various nonprofit organizations Stuart had a passion and a drive for working on community-based initiatives and the majority of his documentaries and programs connected and educated the Charlotte-area community to arts and culture. Upon his arrival at WTVI, he immediately found his calling. His first show as producer/director was ArtSeen which aired in the late 80’s and early 90’s. He also served as director of the very popular and highly rated series Carolina Calling, the music show featuring musical legend Arthur Smith. In his most recent role he was the director of Healthwise, a live call-in medical program.Stuart was viewed by many as a public servant with a zest for working for the community. He videotaped and produced numerous videos for cultural organizations including the N.C. Dance Theatre and the Arts and Science Council. He was so committed to the Arts and Science Council that he coordinated the station’s employee campaign for 15 plus years. Stuart garnered several awards during his broadcasting career, including five Emmy Awards for Focus Composite (Ohio Valley Chapter), Charlotte Symphony, Luminous Impressions, Chihuly in Charlotte, and Out of the Ashes: The Story of McColl Center for Visual Art.

NATAS Nashville/Midsouth Rising Star Committee Chairman David J. Bennett, formerly of the Tennessee Film, Entertainment and Music Commission, and Linn Sitler, Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commissioner presented the third annual Rising Star Award. The award, a crystal pillar, honors an industry professional who shows extraordinary promise. The winner was Bridget Lovelle, Assistant News Director at WPTY in Memphis.
Bridget has worked in the news business for fifteen years. She started on the production side at KAKE Wichita, while attending Wichita State University in 1994. Bridget did everything from studio camera to audio to commercial production. Less than a week after getting her diploma from WSU, Bridget started as the Good Morning Kansas producer at KAKE. She worked her way through the producing ranks before moving to WAVY Norfolk/Virginia Beach as the Executive Producer in 2000. Less than two years later, she took the job as Assistant News Director at Eyewitness News (WPTY/WLMT) in Memphis. Bridget has won several awards including six Kansas Association of Broadcasters awards, three regional Edward R. Murrow awards, numerous Associated Press awards and a Kansas City Press Club award. She was also part of the team at KAKE that won the national Edward R. Murrow award for Overall Excellence. Bridget was nominated for a Midsouth Emmy Award last year for Special Event Coverage, and is a Carole Kneeland Fellow.
