Hernán Fratto, former journalist of América TV and A24, was distinguished with three Emmy awards in the city of Chicago.

On Saturday, November 3, the 64th annual Emmy Awards ceremony of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences of the United States took place. The event was held at the exclusive Grand Ballroom of the Marriott Hotel in downtown Chicago.
Our colleague Hernán Fratto was awarded three statuettes for his work as a journalist and news anchor in three categories.

One of the awards was for the special report “Mother Cabrini, Patroness of Immigrants” in the “Human Interest” category. An investigation on the first American Catholic Saint, an Italian immigrant who dedicated her life to the service of immigrants throughout the United States, founded societies all over the world and died in Chicago where she founded neighborhoods, schools and social organizations.

In an interview with this portal she said: “I still can’t believe it. I was nominated in three categories and I got all three awards,” he said excitedly. “We are in a very competitive city where we fight in the same categories neck and neck with English-language giants with years of experience in the city. To be able to have won in those same categories fills me with excitement and gratitude. But I also had the joy of presenting five categories together with an outstanding local journalist. It was a magical night where we were able to show that the Hispanic market in Chicago has highly qualified professionals to provide creative solutions to an increasingly demanding audience,” he added.

Hernan Fratto emigrated from Buenos Aires to the United States ten years ago and is currently the host of Telemundo Chicago’s Noticiero Telemundo Chicago on the 11:00, 16:00 and 16:30 editions.
