Regional Emmy judges considered hundreds of entries that aired during 2016 in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Montana and Washington. EastIdahoNews.com is the only online news outlet to be nominated in any category.

“We’re honored to be among some of the top journalists in the country nominated for an Emmy,” EastIdahoNews.com News Director Nate Eaton said. “It’s daunting to compete against large news agencies in Seattle, Portland, Spokane and elsewhere, which makes me even prouder of EastIdahoNews.com.”

This is the second year in a row EastIdahoNews.com has been nominated for an Emmy award. Our reporting on the disappearance of DeOrr Kunz Jr. was a finalist in the 2016 Continuing Coverage category.

The 2017 Emmy awards will be presented on June 3 during a gala in Seattle.
