Fort Thomas Matters Receives 2 Blue Chip Award Nominations


Fort Thomas Matters is thrilled to announce that we were nominated for two Blue Chip Media awards in the first year we were eligible to receive an award.

Blue Chip Media honors web based programming and cable access media outlets.

The two nominations are for our podcast, FTM Radio, sponsored by OMEGA Processing (Audio Presentation (Professional) and for our live storytelling series, Story Matters (Audio Presentation - Professional).

We are obviously thrilled to be nominated in two categories, but even more excited that we are in such great company.

Our media friends at The River City News received a total of six nominations, including a joint effort podcast that we joined them in the RCN podcast studio ("Heated Exchange Between Campbell CountyJudge/Exec & Commissioner Ahead of Needle Vote").

We are also excited to see our friend, Cam Miller, receive two nominations for his documentary film, Old Latonia: America's Most Beautiful Race Course, in the Cultural Programming and Documentary categories. An obvious snub, Miller's film, Mark and Lindsey Collier: A Drunk History, did not receive a nomination.

The River City News and Cam Miller are nominated through Telecommunications Board of Northern Kentucky. Fort Thomas Matters was nominated through Campbell County Media Central.

The River City News has two podcasts up for consideration this year. RCN's Michael Monks's bizarre talk with failed Covington City Commission candidate Clayton Shull and the aforementioned joint podcast with Collier.

RCN's attempt at video humor, making fun of Northern Kentuckians' difficulties of explaining where they're from when talking to people out of town ("#NKYproblems: I'm not from Cincinnati"), is nominated in the Promotional Video category and the exploration of historic preservation in Newport with developer Mark Ramler ("Transforming Historic Properties in Newport") is nominated in the Entertainment category.

Campbell County Media Central received 30 nominations while TBNK landed 25 total nominations

The awards show will be held at the Redmoor Theater in Cincinnati on Wednesday, April 26, at 7 p.m.
