Tucker Center video nominated for Emmy Award

"Media Coverage and Female Athletes" DVD box coverThe Tucker Center and tptMN’s collaboratively produced documentary, “Media Coverage and Female Athletes,” has been nominated for a Regional Emmy.

This groundbreaking video builds on a research-based examination of the amount and type of coverage given to female athletes with commentary from expert scholars and award winning coaches and athletes who discuss this timely issue from a variety of perspectives as they help dispel the common—but untrue—myths that “sex sells” women’s sport , and no one is interested in it anyway. Effective strategies for increasing media coverage and creating images which reflect the reality of women’s sports participation and why this is so important are also discussed.

A gala event will be held September 13, 2014, to announce award winners. To view the entire program online now, click here. For more information on upcoming broadcasts, click here.
