Regional Emmy Awards

The Portland Trail Blazers broadcasting crew took home the 2019 Northwest Regional Emmy for Best Sports Program, Live Event, or Game Saturday evening at the Northwest Chapter of the American Academy of Televisions Arts and Sciences awards ceremony in Seattle. On-air talent Lamar Hurd and Kevin Calabro, who accepted the award for Sportscaster of the Year in 2018, appeared alongside Director of Broadcasting Jeff Curtin and others from Blazers Broadcasting to receive the award.

Jaime Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest caught some live footage of their win.

As anyone who watches the broadcast with regularity knows, it is a team effort every night. Congratulations to everyone recognized by the award, including Curtin, Hurd, and Calabro, but also producer Dan Hyatt, courtside reporter Brooke Olzendam, technical director John Burns, graphics coordinator John McConnell, lead tape operator John Lukrofka, pregame producer Nick Livingston, host Jordan Kent, analyst Michael Holton, and the studio director, Jeff Shrum. Rip City is proud of your win.
