On Lateshow with David Letterman,  NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams humorously recounted his adventures in the small plane that took him to upstate New York for the New York State Broadcasters Association Awards ceremony on June 27, 2011. 

That night, Art Express received it's second NYSBA award in the "Best Locally Produced Show" category.  The winning episode featured more of the exclusive interview with opera singer Renee Fleming.

Also in 2011, the "Spotlight" piece I produced on "The Boobie Sisters" received a national award for "News and Public Affairs Content" from NETA , the National Educational Telecommunications Association.  "Spotlight" is a feature segment on the program Mountain Lake Journal Extra.

Also in 2012, the New York State Broadcasters Association again awarded Art Express an award for "Best Locally Produced Show." The winning entry featured a story about violin virtuoso Joshua Bell.
