Two original programs produced by Henrico County Television–Channel 17 (HCTV) have earned Emmy awards from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.  The awards were presented at the 50th Emmy Awards ceremony June 14, 2008 in Washington, D.C.  “No Way Back:  Coping with Alzheimer’s,” produced by Roberta A.

Eubank, captured the prize for the Public/Community Affairs Program.  Tamra R. McKinney, Director of Public Relations & Media Services, and David R.
