The Great Outdoor Games' very first Emmy was for Outstanding Live Audio/Sound, and one of 10 racked up by ESPN and ABC Sports.
"ESPN Outdoors is having a great week and it is only Tuesday," said Christine Godleski, Vice President and General Manager of ESPN Outdoors. "Over the weekend we saw record crowds attending our new exciting Bassmaster Elite 50 series, and now comes this great testament to a talented and passionate group who understand the value of working as a team toward a common goal."
