Tommy brings viewers experiences in the ACC like most fans only dream about!
“This award speaks volumes about the vision of Raycom Sports and everyone who works on
the show,” said host Tommy Kane. “To think, ACC Road Trip was started just two seasons ago with the
intention of being short format content for the Raycom website, and now we have an Emmy Award for
Best Magazine Show!”
“We are very honored to receive this Emmy Award from The National Academy of Television
Arts and Sciences,” said Colin Smith, Vice President of Distribution & New Media for Raycom Sports.
“We began ACC Road Trip as an idea for short features on the web. As it grew in popularity, we expanded
it to longer in-game features. To continue to expand into a television special that has now won an Emmy
Award is very gratifying for Raycom Sports.”
