For the fourth year in a row, CUNY-TV’s Nueva York, with co-hosts Professor Patricio Lerzundi (JCT) and City College Distinguished Lecturer Carmen Boullosa, has captured two New York Emmy® awards. This brings the total number of trophies won by the series to eight.

Nueva York, a series about Latino culture in New York, won Best Magazine Program for its “Best of Season 6” episode featuring a variety of this year’s stories, and Best Program / Special in the Environment category for “Auralís,” about a Puerto Rican fashion designer who makes eco-friendly clothing experiencing her New York Fashion Week debut.

The program was nominated in four categories: historical/cultural, environment, societal concerns, and magazine program. The winners were announced at the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ 55th annual award ceremony, held on April 1 at the Marriott Marquis’ Broadway Ballroom.

Nueva York produces two episodes each month and broadcasts weekly over Channel 75 on Thursday at 10 a.m., 4 p.m., and 10 p.m., and on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.

CUNY-TV, which broadcasts over Channel 75, will carry the three-hour New York Emmy® Award Ceremony on Sunday, April 8, at 9 p.m. and Sunday, April 15, at 1 p.m.
