Friday, September 7, 2012

Eyewitness News on WDIO/WIRT-DT received a Regional Emmy Nomination in early September. Anchor Darren Danielson and photojournalist Glenn Kellahan received the nomination in the Investigative Report / Series category for their two-part feature that looked at the hidden and ysterious problem of underwater corrosion in the Duluth-Superior Harbor. 

Part II, entited, "Stopping Corrosion in our Harbors," looks at what's being done to remediate and, potentially, stop the microbiologically influenced corrosion that is eating away the underwater steel along the working shoreline of the Duluth-Superior port.

Eyewitness News cameras took viewers on a scuba dive allowing them to see the corrosion with their own eyes. The stories outlined what federal and state agencies are doing to address an expensive problem that scientists call significant and alarming.

Since 2000, Eyewitness News has been honored with 38 Emmy Nominations.
