MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — WCCO-TV’s very own Pat Kessler will receive the 2014 Emmy Silver Circle award on Sept. 13 at Target Field.
The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences-Upper Midwest Chapter announced the nominees Wednesday.
“These individuals have made a significant contribution to the television industry well above and beyond that required by their job,” the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences website states. “Nominees answer to the highest standards of integrity and honor in all aspects of their personal and professional lives.”
Kessler has been on the beat longer than any other TV reporter in the Twin Cities, covering state government, politics, campaigns and conventions since 1984.
Before joining WCCO-TV, Pat was a reporter for Minnesota Public Radio, and a technical assistant for “A Prairie Home Companion” with Garrison Keillor.
