Zach Christman is a news editor for WMAQ-TV. He won two Emmys this year.

My Emmy experience has been one of change.  I’ve been working in the Chicago news scene since 2004, first primarily as an online journalist.  I was lucky enough to win several Emmys with that work, and I’m really proud of it.

A few years back, I started on a quest to become a better video editor.  It took some time, but I eventually worked my way into editing special reports and investigative stories at WMAQ.  This year was the first time I entered in the Craft-Editor category, and to win was really exciting.  If you watch my speech, I’m sure you can tell.  It’s a great feeling to have your peers recognize your work as worthy of an Emmy.  Especially when that work represents a new chapter in your career.
