Chamber Awards to be featured on WVPT broadcast

“The Greater Augusta Regional Chamber of Commerce 2011 Annual Awards” will air on WVPT-Virginia’s Public Television on Sunday, May 6, at 11:30 a.m.

The television show was produced for WVPT by Augusta Free Press, which produced a series of videos highlighting the winners at the March 20 Annual Awards Dinner that served as the basis for the half-hour TV broadcast.

“We’re excited to have this opportunity to showcase what we can and to showcase business and industry in the Greater Augusta region,” said Augusta Free Press LLC president Chris Graham, who was responsible for filming, editing and producing the TV show for WVPT.

The broadcast will feature an opening with David Mullins, the president of WVPT, who initiated the effort to bring the Annual Awards to TV after seeing clips of the Awards Dinner videos online.

The show will also feature a welcome message from Chamber President and CEO Linda Hershey.
