Keagan Harsha wins Lone Star Regional Emmy

Montana Journalism alum Keagan Harsha says he's "extra excited" after winning his first Emmy Award. Harsha, who graduated in 2004, won a Lone Star Regional Emmy for a series he reported, wrote, videotaped and edited. The franchise, Local Treasures, highlights natural wonders and outdoor adventures in Texas, New Mexico and Mexico. The reporting took Harsha up mountains and down waterways and proved to be a great workout.

Harsha said, "I think what set my stories apart was the natural sound, something that was drilled into my brain time and time again during my four years at the School of Journalism." 

Harsha grew up in Columbus, Mont. and went to work for KULR-TV in Billings after earning his degree in Radio-Television. He worked at WCAX in Burlington, Vermont before taking his current job as evening news anchor for KTSM in El Paso, Texas.
