Mario Armstrong’s Never Settle Show Wins Emmy for Interactivity

Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update and Flash Briefing for Monday, April 16th, 2018.

The Emmy nominees included Newsday.com, MSGNetwork.com and WPIX-TV, but the winner of the NY Emmy for Interactivity goes to Mario Armstrong’s Never Settle Show, co-produced by Roker Media. Cathy Nolan was a cast member and the show’s caricaturist during the Emmy-winning first season. She said an Emmy never crossed her mind when she joined the show.

The Emmy for Interactivity rewards “cutting-edge innovation by actively engaging audience participation over multiple media platforms,” including “(digital and social media elements) to drive engagement before, during and after the broadcast.”

Cathy credits Mario’s hosting talent for the in-show engagement.

Cathy said Mario’s own journey in creating the Never Settle Show embodies what the show is all about.

What made being part of season 1 so special?

Thanks to Cathy Nolan for spending time and sharing her thoughts on the Never Settle Show’s Emmy Award. You find out more about Cathy and see her artwork across social media at @cathynolanart.
