“The first-ever Emmy for outstanding individual achievement in content for non-traditional delivery platform was presented to Travis Fox, washingtonpost.com’s senior video journalist, for his films on the fallout of the disaster that hit Louisiana and Mississippi, in late August last year.
“The award was made at the National Television Academy‘s 27th Annual News and Documentary Emmy Awards ceremony held in New York last night.
“Fox told Journalism.co.uk the films avoided the traditional presenter driven format of TV news.
“They instead adopted a more subtle approach using the voice of the subjects to more effectively drive the individual stories.”
