Happy New Year Ann Arbor! I hope you had a great one!
In this podcast, we will now briefly look at a few highlights from 2010 and tell you what you can look forward to from CTN this first month of 2011.
In this spirit of cherished reflection, let us now review a few of the noteworthy accomplishments CTN has seen in this past year, shall we?
The 2010 Producer of the Year went to Tammi Williams, who, in this past year, was the individual who produced the most new programs.
Two Lifetime Achievement Awards were also given out this past year, one to Barbara Clarke who has been a Community Producer since 1989, and the other to Dave Chappell, Community Producer since 1990.
CTN thanks all of its volunteer producers for how they have benefitted and inspired CTN and the Ann Arbor community! Keep up the good work!
So, congratulations to those whose work won awards and honorable mentions at the NATOA Awards this year: Mister Laurence Miller, Ms. Princess Melinda, Kathleen Russell, K. Eva Weiss, Dana Denha, Rob Cross, Reka Farrackand, and Time Nagae.
We celebrate CTN Producers Dana Denha and Tim Nagae for each winning national awards at the 2010 Hometown Video Festival.
We also want to recognize and applaud the CTN staff, community producers, and production crew members whose work won regional awards at the Philo T. Farnsworth Video Festival this year: Paul Sutherland, Dana Denha, Rob Cross, Reka Farrackand, Mister Laurence Miller, Ms. Princess Melinda, OSO, Tanya Veilleux (VAYoo), Jesse Sinatra, Isaac Delongchamp, and Barbara Lucas.

Again, CTN offers sincerest thanks and congratulations to this year’s CTN Award Winners, all the community producers and staff who won video festival awards, all the members of the community involved with CTN, and all of our fans and viewers for making 2010 an outstanding year for CTN!
