A+E Networks Named TV Acad’s 2015 Governors Award Winner

Thanks in part to its corporate social responsibility programs, A+E Networks is this year’s recipient of the TV Academy’s Governors Award, the Academy announced Thursday.

Nancy Dubuc, president and CEO of A+E Networks, was overjoyed that her company’s long history of philanthropic efforts are being recognized, saying in a statement: “For over 30 years, A+E Networks has had an unwavering commitment to the communities we serve. It is a great honor for our corporate outreach initiatives to be recognized by the Television Academy with its Governors Award. Television is a powerful medium, and we are proud to be able to use our networks and platforms to shine a light on important social issues.”

A+E Network’s work includes partnerships with such organizations as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, March of Dimes, NAACP, Stand Up to Cancer and Team Rubicon. In addition, its shows like A&E’s “Intervention Town Hall Meetings,” Lifetime’s “Broad Focus,” History’s “Thank a Veteran at Work” and “Take A Veteran to School” have all joined with corporate and government leaders, including the White House, to participate in major public service initiatives.

The award, which will be handed out this year on Sept. 12 at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, is not always given to a group; rather, each year the Television Academy’s board of governors chooses an individual, company, organization or project for outstanding cumulative or singular achievement in the television industry. Past recipients have included Bob Hope, Walter Cronkite, “American Idol Gives Back” and the It Gets Better project.
