Telemundo segment on José Lopez wins Emmy

Telemundo 51 received an Emmy award for Outstanding Achievement for Human Interest – News for a segment that featured José López Masso of Lighthouse of Broward. Daniel Alberto Silva Fernandez of Telemundo accepted the award from the Suncoast Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) for their work with cameraman and editor Mario Reguera on “Biografias Personales.”

José, our Director of Community Relations and Development, is totally blind, and the Telemundo team created an inspiring story with his help.

“A prize such as this 2015 Emmy is the result of the love and friendship of people who open the doors of their homes and their souls,” Silva said.  “It is because of those who help others, for pictures that allow us to capture the best of people in our community.” Telemundo
