Englewood native Todd Ehrlich, who won the New York Emmy Award in 2013 for the best community service program of the year for his WCBS-TV 9/11 special, “Tunnel to Towers,” has been nominated for five 2014 New York Emmy Awards, which will be announced on March 30 at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. Ehrlich is a producer at WCBS-TV and President of T-LINE TV.
Ehrlich’s work on last year’s “Tunnel to Towers” special was once again nominated for an Emmy, this time in the Societal Concerns category. The Stephen Siller “Tunnel to Towers” Memorial Run is a tri-state area event that honors Siller and the 342 other firefighters who lost their life on September 11th, 2001 while trying to save others.
At the awards ceremony last year, Ehrlich recounted the tail of generosity of a viewer who donated funds to build a wounded vet a new home and said, “It is times like that when your vocation can have that type of impact on someone’s life, in their time of need, that it really humbles you and makes you very thankful that I am able to do what I do.”
In addition to “Tunnel to Towers,” Ehrlich received nominations for the following shows, which all aired on WCBS-TV.
1. Health/Science: Program Special – 2012 Race for the Cure
2. Societal Concerns: 2012 Tunnel to Towers Run
3. Breaking News Coverage: Super Storm Sandy
4. Team Coverage: Super Storm Sandy
5. News Excellence: Super Storm Sandy
Ehrlich has won two New York Emmys and has now been nominated for 14 in his career.
