March 25, 2011
The National Broadcasting Society has announced that Curry TV CC8's Curry College: Hope for Haiti public affairs program that aired live in February 2010 has won the award for best Public Affairs Program in the nation for all colleges and universities.

"This was an exceptional broadcast, and I'm very happy that our peers around the country saw it that way too," remarked Professor Jerry Gibbs, Director of TV, about the award. "It's a proud day for Curry College, our 132-year-old Communication program, and for CC8. TV Practicum class leaders Scott Fersht, Brad Norris and Kimber Hamill and all of the other students who helped out, should be very proud indeed."
