It was announced on Friday, September 30 that SDPB's "Finding Cannon Company" story was nominated for an Upper Midwest Emmy award in the category of Historic/Cultural/Nostalgic – Single Story.
"Finding Cannon Company" chronicles the work of Gigi Hickey as she solves the mystery of the 12-foot Nazi banner she found in her mother's attic. It was signed by 84 American soldiers from Cannon Company, 358th, 90th Division. Gigi spent years tracking down the men and their families behind the names to find answers about her mother's first husband, Maurice Clifton 'Pete" Henrichsen, who died in the Battle of the Bulge in January 1945.
We are immensely proud of producer Andrew Bork and videographers Josh Kappler and Chad Andersen for their achievement. Winners in each category will be announced at the 2016 Upper Midwest Regional Emmy® Awards Gala on Saturday October 29th.
