Karin and Abner win Silver Circle Emmy Award

By Brittany Pieper  - bio | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -This weekend NewsChannel 11's Karin McCay and Abner Euresti went to Dallas to receive a prestigious award for their many years of service to both broadcasting and West Texas.

"Tonight our first Silver Circle inductee is a team. When Karin McCay and Abner Euresti first started anchoring the news together Jimmy Carter was president, gasoline was creeping near a dollar a gallon, and two young journalists were looking to make a name for themselves," said Silver Circle Committee Chair, Jason Anderson, when he presented the award.

 "I can't believe we're here, but I'm glad we're here together," said McCay. 

Karin and Abner joined an elite group of only about 15 broadcasters in the state when they were inducted into the Silver Circle of the Lone Star Chapter of the Emmys. To receive the award you must spend at least 25 years in the business.

"If you stick around long enough, you don't even have to submit anything.  They give you an award," said Euresti jokingly as he accepted the award.

However, it takes more than longevity. "They are truly a part of West Texas, and not only anchors on the desk, but anchors in the community," said Anderson. 

Karin and Abner were inducted into the Silver Circle along with Dallas sports legend Dale Hansen.
