Two Enquirer photojournalists brought home regional Emmy awards Saturday night for a video they shot and produced together.
Carrie Cochran and Glenn Hartong represented the Enquirer as the only newspaper to be nominated for the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ 50th annual Ohio Valley Regional Emmy Awards.
Cochran and Hartong’s video “A perfect day” won the Societal Concerns category. The video tells the story of John Arthur, an ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease) patient, and Jim Obergefell, of Over-the-Rhine, partners for more than 20 years. The two got married on a medical plane in Maryland following the Supreme Court ruling that allows for official recognition of gay marriage. Arthur died months later.
