Omaha - The UNO Television production “UNO 100: Central to our City” recently received a Silver Davey award in the History/Biography category.
The Davey Awards are sanctioned and judged by the International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA), an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals from acclaimed media, advertising and marketing firms. IAVA members include executives from organizations such as Coach, Disney, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Estee Lauder, HBO, Keller Crescent, Monster.com, MTV, Polo Ralph Lauren and several others.
“UNO 100: Central to our City” spotlights 100 years of growth for the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) through historic photos and interview clips in three parts: campus growth, academic development and university life.

Mike Pacholski, a producer/director with UNO Television, produced the program with help from other members of UNO Television.

Added Robert Franklin, director of Media Operations for UNO Television and KVNO: “We are extremely proud of this recognition for UNO Television and Mike Pacholski. His work exemplifies excellence and professionalism of the highest caliber. We congratulate Mike on a job well done.”
