Former student earns Emmy Award

Todd Dinsmore, a graduate of the Penn State Altoona Communications Program, has earned an Emmy Award for his role in the production of the Top Human Interest/News Feature story for the Mid-Atlantic region. The piece, titled “Images of Bravery,” was anchored by Tanya Foster, with Dinsmore serving as photographer.

The story was produced and aired on WHP, a CBS affiliate based in Harrisburg, Pa. This is the fourth Emmy Award to be earned by a former Penn State Altoona communications student; Brian Smithmyer earned one in 2009 and Kurt Deichert received one in 2007 and one in 2005.

Dinsmore currently is employed by KUTV, a CBS affiliate in Salt Lake City.
