Last night the Swails family was thrilled to add a new addition to the Family. I won a Midwest Emmy for our live coverage of the Iowa City tornado back in May. It was my third Emmy in 2 years and I'm extremely proud of that. My weather team of Rebecca Kopleman, Brandon Marshall, and Nick Stewart played an important role in helping me attain this achievement. I am very grateful to them for their hard work and unyeilding commitment to excellence .
The cool thing about the coverage was that the tornado was on the ground doing damage as we showed it live to our viewers. It was really compelling and brought home the life threatening nature of the event to those watching. It was one of the greatest TV moments (and most important) of my career. Maybe it was only fitting that I went out with a bang and an Emmy. It was a humbling and happy way to end my 43 year TV career.
I also want to thank all of you rock starts who have donated the $12 dollar voluntary subscription fee to keep TSwails.com up and running. We now rely in your support. Going forward it is my job and mission to make TSwails bigger, better, and more interactive. I have big plans and we are going to have some fun doing it! PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING TSWAILS HERE.
