Story in the Public Square awarded bronze in annual Telly Awards
Story in the Public Square has been awarded bronze for best political/commentary in television in the 39th annual Telly Awards, which honor excellence in video and television across all screens as judged by leaders from video platforms, television and streaming networks, agencies and production companies.
Story in the Public Square was honored for its 2017 “Story of the Year” episode, which focused on the Trump-Russia investigation and featured Dr. Evelyn Farkas of the Atlantic Council.
Story in the Public Square is an initiative to study, celebrate, and tell stories that matter. Each week, hosts Jim Ludes from Salve Regina’s Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy and G. Wayne Miller from the Providence Journal sit down with talented storytellers and scholars to make sense of the narratives shaping public life in the United States.
“We are humbled to be honored by the Telly Awards,” Ludes said. “We work with a great team at Rhode Island PBS to produce the show, and we’re excited to grow and continue telling stories that are important.”
“We’ve been mindful of the need to stay out of the way of our guests who are gifted storytellers,” Miller added. “They’re the reason the show works, so we’ll proudly accept this honor on behalf of everyone who has been a part of Story in the Public Square.”
Story in the Public Square airs on Rhode Island PBS at 11 a.m. Sundays and is rebroadcast at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays. An audio version of the program airs at 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. Saturdays, at 12:30 p.m. Sundays and at 2:30 a.m. Mondays on SiriusXM’s POTUS (Politics of the United States), channel 124.
