Royals take home an Emmy!
You may have heard that Joakim Soria earned “DHL Presents the Major League Baseball Delivery Man of the Month Award” honors yesterday. Congratulations to Joakim, who boasted a 0.00 ERA while establishing a Royals record with 9 saves during the month.
Soria isn’t the only member of the Royals family with new hardware on the mantle…Royals associates Kim Burgess and Curt Nelson have been awarded a regional Emmy in the “Commercial – Single Spot” category. Kim and Curt, along with John Kekeisen of Metro Sports, won for their “2007 Royals Holiday Commercial”. The regional Emmy is from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) Mid-America chapter. Entries for the regional Emmy are from designated market areas in Arkansas, Illinois, Louisiana, and Missouri.
Kim, Curt, and John were nominated for an Emmy in 2006 for the “This is Kansas City” television marketing campaign. Congrats!
