By George Fairfield, JAG Awards Committee, Chair
The curtain has come down on another JAG Awards season. On behalf of JAG and the Awards Committee, I congratulate everyone; not only all the Award of Excellence, Distinction, & Recognition winners, but also ALL those who entered even just one program into the JAG Awards. These days it is not easy for a PEG station, a Non-profit, or an Independent Producer to create a program. We all have budgets to navigate through; we all have to maneuver through the different agendas along our paths; and let us not forget how we all must constantly pilot through the obstacles the pandemic keeps throwing into our way. Nevertheless, with all this and more swirling around, our PEG community produced and entered into the JAG Awards Competition some of the most diverse programs ever. AND we had some of the most diversity among the winners than I can recall.
