PPLD TV Production Wins Emmy

Jamey Hastings

At a ceremony on Saturday, July 21 in Denver’s Seawell Grand Ballroom, Pikes Peak Library District Multimedia Producer Jamey Hastings was awarded a 2012 Heartland Emmy Award in the Interstitial Program category for her piece, “Colorado Springs Beat: The News Photography of Stan Payne.”

The short documentary chronicles the work of Stan Payne, a Gazette Telegraph employee from 1947 to 1976, and was based on research by PPLD Special Collections Assistant Manager Dennis Daily. The Heartland Chapter Emmy Awards represent excellence in television and media production.

“This is a huge honor,” Hastings said. “There were a lot of great submissions and I’m so thrilled that our piece was chosen.”



Congrats Jamie that's

Congrats Jamie that's awesome! What a great piece!


I am a teacher of our youth. I am at your Old Colorado City branch where children are using their outside voices inside.

At our schools we teach children the difference. What do I tell them when they say "We don't have to be quiet at the public library."?

Don't respond please--just "do the right thing."

Nicely Done!

Beautiful piece of Mr. Payne's career. Congratulations on an award well deserved!

Award so well deserved!

Congratulations to Jamey Hastings on this well deserved award! Excellent work!
