CLEVELAND, Ohio (PRWEB) June 28, 2018
Antiques and collectibles expert Terry Kovel is the subject of an award-winning video, “A Peek Inside the Collectibles Empire of Terry Kovel,” produced for WVIZ/Ideastream®, Cleveland’s public television station. The Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) has just awarded David C. Barnett and Mary Fecteau of Ideastream with a National Edward R. Murrow Award for Excellence in Video, Large Market Radio, after winning a Regional Edward R. Murrow award this past spring.
For more than 50 years, collectors across the country have turned to Terry Kovel for information on the identification, history and value of family treasures and antiques show and flea market finds. She is the well-known syndicated columnist, author of more than 100 books, and was featured on three TV series, all about antiques and collecting. The video was inspired by the publication of the 50th Anniversary Edition of “Kovels’ Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide,” Kovel’s best-selling annual book that reports on the antiques market.
The Cleveland, Ohio, resident welcomed David Barnett into the office she and her late husband, Ralph, added onto their 1950’s house. Barnett and Terry take viewers on a tour, perusing the scores of antique toys, outdated kitchen gadgets, advertising items and various kinds of pottery that fill her shelves, while chatting about her 50-plus years of collecting and writing about collectibles.
The RTDNA has been honoring outstanding achievements in electronic journalism with the Edward R. Murrow Awards since 1971. Edward R. Murrow’s pursuit of excellence in journalism embodies the spirit of the awards that carry his name.
