WTTV-TV Channel 4 and Tribune Creative Group were recently recognized with a Silver Award at the 2011 Promax/BDA Promotion, Marketing and Design North America Awards Show.  

“WTTV has undergone a complete face-lift,” said Sean Compton, president of programming for Tribune Broadcasting, WTTV’s parent company. “These awards represent the incredible job done by our regional creative team.”

“For a local station to be acknowledged at the national level is a huge win,” said Carrie King, regional vice president for Tribune Creative Group. “It’s really something special to see one of our local stations from the Heartland acknowledged by our industry peers.” 

Of the 118 total categories in Promax North America, only four local TV stations in the United States were finalists and only WTTV won an award.

The winners in the category, alongside WTTV, were USA Network and Nickelodeon. WTTV is owned by Chicago-based Tribune Co.•
