Emmy Goes to Bill Heard Investigation


"NewsChannel 5 Investigates" landed yet another Emmy Award Saturday night, this time for the investigation of Bill Heard Chevrolet.

The Midsouth chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences awarded the Emmy statuette for investigative reporting Saturday night during ceremonies at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville.

It's the third time in three years that "NewsChannel 5 Investigates" has taken home the Emmy in the category.

Consumer investigator Jennifer Kraus, who led the investigation, applauded NewsChannel 5's management for their commitment to "journalism with a capital 'J.'"

Photojournalist Bryan Staples and producer Kevin Wisniewski joined in the investigation, which was supervised by chief investigative reporter Phil Williams.

NewsChannel 5's investigation documented questionable sales and financing practices inside the Nashville-area dealership, which is part of a company that bills itself as the World's Largest Chevy Dealer.  It led to a state investigation of the company's practices.

The Bill Heard investigation has also been recognized with a national Edward R. Murrow Award for investigative reporting, a National Headliner Award for business and consumer reporting, and the Consumer Journalism Award from the National Press Club.
