A University of Arizona media arts alum won two awards at the recent 2007 Rocky Mountain Emmy Award Ceremony, held in Glendale, Ariz.

Erick Moreno, a Douglas, Ariz., native who graduated from the UA in 2003, won Emmys in two categories: directing for post-production design and video editing.

Moreno specifically was recognized for news stories he produced for KTAZ Telemundo in Phoenix, where he is the technical director and producer, and at KHRR Telemundo in Tucson.

Moreno began working for Telemundo in Tucson while he was still a student at the UA. After graduation, he was promoted to the Phoenix station.

He credits his time at the UA as instrumental to his success, and cites his former professors and instructors for providing the inspiration that led him to pursue a career in television.
