For the seventh straight year, a student at the Southeastern Channel, Southeastern’s educational access station, has been honored with college division Student Production Award recognition given by the Emmy Awards’ Suncoast Region of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
Dylan Domangue of Houma was selected as a nominee in the “Talent” category for his On-Camera Composite of anchoring and reporting work for the national award-winning student sportscast “The Big Game,” along with his play-by-play, color analyst and sideline reporting work for Southeastern football and baseball live game broadcasts.
Domangue was honored in the Emmy Suncoast Region comprised of television stations and production companies in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Puerto Rico. The Southeastern Channel has been named a winner by the Emmys 17 times with 63 nominations.
“To be nominated for an Emmy and placed in the same category with others in the country who are thriving in television is truly an honor like no other,” Domangue said.
Domangue was one of only two students nominated in the “Talent” category.
“I honestly believe I was nominated for an Emmy because of the supporting crew around me,” Domangue continued. “Every day I go to work with those who want the best for me and want to see me succeed. Learning and being supported by them allows me to thrive at the Southeastern Channel.”
Domangue serves as producer, director, anchor and reporter for “The Big Game” sportscast. He writes, shoots and edits all of his own stories, along with providing voiceover narration.
“Recognition by the Emmys is the highest honor you can receive in television,” said Southeastern Channel General Manager Rick Settoon. “Dylan is very deserving because he’s so skilled and natural on camera, and his reporting, anchoring and game broadcast announcing are stellar. He has also won national awards for his technical prowess, from videography to game broadcast directing. Dylan’s talent, work ethic and attitude set him apart, and for the past three years, he has been one of the best student leaders we have ever had at the Southeastern Channel. We’re so excited for him.”
The Southeastern Channel has won over 400 national, international and regional awards in the past 16 years.
“The Southeastern Channel allows us to complete projects in and out of class to enhance our skills in on-camera talent, making promos, setting up interviews, formatting stories, and shooting and editing,” Domangue said. “Under the station manager, Rick Settoon, workers at the Southeastern Channel have the ability to enhance their skills by being on the many shows we have and producing packages for them. With every show and story I do, I try to do better than I did the previous time, and it’s because we are given the chance to succeed every day.
“If any student in the South and really throughout the entire country wants a professional job in the TV industry, there is no better school to attend as your stepping stone than Southeastern.”
