Every week, Colorado Inside Out takes on the big events of the day in Denver. But once a year, it creates a special history show dedicated to the big events of an earlier year.
Last year, it was 1959, and that show just won a regional Emmy in the interview/discussion category -- despite my alleged performance as a Colorado beauty queen, following in the real-life high-heeled footsteps of Miss America Marilyn Van Derbur.
Fortunately, the work of my colleagues was strong enough to create a winning program, which you can watch here.
And an even more unlikely local show won another Emmy: Staffers documenting the demise of the Rocky Mountain News wound up collecting an award for their death documentary.
