WJLP Takes Home Three New York Emmy Awards

New York, NY – PMCM TV’s WJLP won three Emmy® awards at the 59th Annual New York Emmy® awards which took place at the Marriot® Marquis Broadway Ballroom on March 19th, 2016. WJLP licensed to Middletown, NJ blankets the entire New York Market with its signal emanating from the top of 4 Time Square in Manhattan. Lee Leddy, PMCM Group VP, says “The Emmys® awarded last Saturday evening show the commitment the station and its staff have made to fulfilling the goal of local service to the state with the twin goals of insightful public affairs programming and local news.”

The Emmy® awards ceremony honored WJLP’s Another Thing with Larry Mendte. Larry was recognized with wins for On-Camera Talent: Reporter – Specialty Assignment for his series of commentaries about the media entitled “Mendte on the Media”. Larry also won On-Camera Talent: Commentator/Editorialist for his weekly commentaries that air on Another Thing with Larry Mendte. Larry’s third win of the night was for Writer: Commentary/Editorial about the Charleston church shooting and what lessons can be learned from the tragedy.

WJLP, despite being on the air for only 18 months, is no stranger to recognition, as the station has already won two prestigious Best of the Best Awards for news and public affairs from the New Jersey Broadcasters Association in 2015.

Another Thing with Larry Mendte is produced by parent company PMCM TV who also owns and operates KJWP DTV in Wilmington, DE. KJWP serves the entire Philadelphia market and enjoyed its first Mid-Atlantic Emmy® for its public affairs programming last year. KJWP has also won several awards from the Delaware Press Association for its news and public affairs programming.

“These awards are a reflection of the great team I have to work with here at PMCM TV,” explained Larry Mendte, “All of these awards speak volumes of the hard work and dedication our small staff puts into these shows every week.”

Robert E. Mc Allan, PMCM TV CEO says, “We are extraordinarily proud of the work our staff has done in producing Another Thing and our other local shows, Jersey Matters and The Delaware Way.” He especially singled out Larry Mendte for the expertise and air of professionalism he has brought to our air and our entire production team.

PMCM TV also has an agreement with Gannett Company who supplied content and video components from several newspapers in the Northeast including The Asbury Park Press and The News Journal in Delaware for daily “Newbreaks” that air hourly in the daytime.
