Lindsey Theis '07

Lindsey Theis was nominated for a News and Documentary Emmy Award by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in the Best Feature Reporting category for her work on a two-part series titled, “If These Streets Could Talk.” Theis is a reporter with WPDE-TV, the local ABC affiliate in Myrtle Beach/Florence, S.C. The piece was selected from 36 entries and WPDE-TV is the smallest market station represented within the four nominees in the category.

“The photographer and I approached the story from a raw, documentary angle,” she said. “That was definitely a skill I picked up at NCTV while working on documentaries. Executive Director Liz Spencer told me once that there’s a story everywhere; you just have to be ready to tell it. And I think this was one of those stories that was just waiting to be told.”
