Centennial Documentary Garners Three Telly Awards
The city’s centennial documentary “Merger: Making the Twin City” was honored three times in the 35th annual Telly Awards. The hour-long documentary won a silver Telly, which is the competition’s top prize, for documentary production. “Merger” was also a finalist and received bronze Telly awards for writing and use of music.
“Merger: Making the Twin City” combines interviews, re-enactments and rarely seen photographs to examine the origins of Salem, the establishment of Winston and its rise as an industrial center and the forces that made consolidation inevitable.
The Telly Awards recognize outstanding film and video productions and non-network television programs and commercials. With these awards, WSTV 13 has won 15 Telly awards since 2002.
