Contact: Mike Greife
WARRENSBURG, MO (June 21, 2010) – KMOS-TV, the University of Central Missouri’s public broadcasting station, recently received a second place award in special programs from the Missouri Broadcasters Association for the locally produced program, “Grillin’ and Droolin’ with Giuliano,” that aired in August 2009.

Produced by KMOS-TV staff, the program featured Warrensburg restaurant owner Giuliano Monetti in the second of two special programs that featured tips for outdoor grilling.

Production staff on the program included Roy Millen, production coordinator; Christy Millen, program and production producer; Alden Miller, multimedia producer; and Dorothy McGrath, manager of television and community programs.

“It was a lot of fun to work with such a professional crew,” Monetti said. “I’d never done this before, and I didn’t know what to expect, but the crew made it easy, and I was impressed with the final result. These folks are talented.”

Donald Peterson, director of broadcasting services for UCM, said the opportunity to work with Monetti on a local program provided a win-win situation for everyone involved.

“He was entertaining, and he provided a fun, informative program for our viewers,” Peterson said. “This is the type of programming we will continue to produce here in our studios in our ongoing efforts to bring the local community to all of our viewers.”

KMOS-TV also has received awards for its local production of “Jerry Adams Outdoors,” featuring fishing expert Jerry Adams in a weekly program; “University Magazine,” a weekly broadcast newsmagazine produced by students that provides a glimpse into the activities of the university's students, faculty, staff and alumni; and “Sportspage,” a weekly program that profiles student athletes through interviews, features and game highlights, along with weekly discussions with UCM coaches.

KMOS-TV broadcasts on digital channels 6.1, 6.2 and 6.3, providing PBS programming to 38 Missouri counties from offices and studios in the Patton Broadcast Center on the UCM campus.
