T.V Legend Bobbie Wygant
Emmy Award-winning television legend Bobbie Wygant began her groundbreaking seventy-year career at WBAP-TV in 1948, two weeks before the station went on the air. She is a founding member of the national Broadcast Film Critics Association and was honored by them with their "Critic's Critic Award" in 2000. In 2004, Wygant was inducted into the elite Gold Circle of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for her fifty years of contributions to television broadcasting. In 2014 the Alliance for Women In Media honored her with their Gracie Award for Outstanding Reporter/Correspondent. Wygant recently released her memoir Talking to the Stars: Bobbie Wygant's Seventy Years in Television. Join us on June 24 at 7pm at the Grapevine Public Library for another interesting program.
