Here's Part 10 of the Twentieth Annual Chicago Emmy Awards on WBBM Channel 2, hosted by Bob Newhart.
This part features John Drury, Joan McGrath, Elayne Goldstein, Patterson Denny, Thea Flaum, Gene Siskel, and footage of Linda Winer.
Mr. Denny and Ms. Goldstein won in the category of "Outstanding Achievements for Entertainment Programs: For a Series" [7(B)] as co-producers of Made in Chicago on WTTW Channel 11. A clip of this show, featuring Linda Winer, then arts critic of the Chicago Tribune (and who, for many years starting in the late 1980's, was drama critic for New York Newsday), is then shown. Norm Cherry, WCIU director, is nominated for Polka Party but does not win unfortunately.
Mr. Siskel and Ms. Flaum won in the category of "Outstanding Achievements for Entertainment Programs: For a Single Special Program" [7(C)] as host and producer, respectively, of NightWatch on WTTW Channel 11. (And to think he was only known for his long on-air partnership with Roger Ebert on Sneak Previews and all that came after.) A clip of this rare program from Mr. Siskel's long TV career is then shown.
