RVtoday, the top-rated TV program about RVs and the RV lifestyle, recently was awarded four Bronze Telly Awards for its 2002-2003 season, according to Affinity Group Inc. (AGI), producer of the show.
The Telly Awards are a well-known, highly respected national competition showcasing outstanding film and video productions as well as non-network TV programming, according to AGI, which also is the parent of TL Enterprises Inc., publisher of RV Business and RVBUSINESS.COM.
The Telly Awards also recognize non-network and cable TV commercials and they are one of the most sought-after awards in the TV commercial and video industry.
“We are very excited that four of our half-hour programs were named bronze award finalists,” said Bob Livingston, executive director for RVtoday. “This is a tremendous achievement for our production crew and staff.”
RVtoday (www.rvtoday.tv) airs seven days a week every week of the year on the Outdoor Life Network (OLN), a premier network for outdoor enthusiasts.
OLN projects it will reach 64 million homes by the end of 2003.
Telly Award recognition went to four shows featuring segments on Southern California’s Anza-Borrego Desert and Deanza Springs, and Apache Junction and Quartzsite, Ariz. Each entry is judged on a 10-point scale. Entries do not compete against each other. Rather, they compete against a standard of excellence. “Given that less than 18% of the entries are judged finalists out of more than 10,000 submissions, we are very honored to have been selected,” Livingston said. “We know that all 10,000 represent the very best work created by the industry.”
RVtoday began airing during April 2001 and 26 new episodes, capturing the fun and adventure of the RV lifestyle, will be produced this year.
RVtoday features segments on topics ranging from motorhome and trailer tests, to how to prepare a gourmet meal in an RV kitchen. It also explores resorts and outdoor vacation opportunities throughout the U.S., Mexico and Canada.
