Darley Newman, CCAS/SMPA BA ’01, hosts the PBS travel series Equitrekking, which won a Daytime Emmy on June 16.
Equitrekking is a lifestyle television series that takes viewers on global travel adventures to experience culture, cuisine, history and adventure with local people.
This is Equitrekking’s third Daytime Emmy Award win for Outstanding Single Camera Photography and its eighth nomination.
The winning episode was filmed in Botswana. Newman, a five-time Emmy-nominated TV host, led viewers through the Okavango Delta, one of Earth’s last great wilderness areas, and across the lunar-like Makgadikgadi Pans.
“It’s an honor for every member of our production team to receive Daytime Emmy Award nominations and very satisfying to win for Equitrekking’s beautiful photography,” said Newman.
Equitrekking also received nominations for Outstanding Special Class Writing and Outstanding Travel Program alongside The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild, and other exceptional television programs.
Equitrekking, which just completed its 36th episode, is broadcast in the US and on international networks in more than 82 countries.
