Ooh, are you going to have an Emmy statuette sitting on the Red Zone Channel set as something for the camera to pan past as you're going into or out of a studio segment? Hey, if it works for Stephen Colbert...

(That is, assuming there's going to be a Red Zone Channel this fall, of course.)

On the heels of the Emmy Awards show last night I thought I would go ahead and post these pictures of former moderator Earl Bonovich and his Emmy.

He won it as an associate producer for outstanding new approaches to sports event coverage: NFL Sunday Ticket Experience on DIRECTV

Great work Earl and congrats!
