Cincinnati – CET’s local production, Ault Park: Emerald in the Crown has been nominated for a regional Emmy Award in the historical documentary category. Nominations were announced today, Tuesday, June 12, by the Ohio Valley Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

In this half-hour program, CET takes viewers through the history of Ault Park. This park was donated to Cincinnati by Levi Addison Ault, who led the first Board of Park Commissioners and developed a plan for a city-wide park system. This special park is marked by grand architecture, an iconic pavilion, public art, breathtaking landscapes and a plethora of community events.

CET would like to congratulate the Ault Park: Emerald in the Crown production team Julie Davis, Jason Wilson, Richard Nordstrom, Nicholas Baute, Matt Schwartz, Mike Schwartz and Paul Verhagen.

Ault Park: Emerald in the Crown is the second half of a two-part documentary about Cincinnati’s Parks produced by CET. This documentary was produced with the generous support of The Helen G., Henry F., & Louise Dornette Foundation, Fifth Third Bank Trustee; August A. Rendigs, Jr. Foundation; and the Rudolph and Marie Simich Family Foundation. For more information, visit www.CETconnect.org/cincinnati-parks.
