We are proud to announce that the Turkish American Television received “Excellence in Media” award at the 32. Annual National Turkish American Convention, organized by ATAA, FTAA, and TACC, on Saturday, April 14, 2012. On his speech at the Awards Ceremony, TATV producer Hurriyet Aydin Ok said “I am honored and moved by this award. TATV received several awards from our community during the past 7 years. But this award is particularly important to us because this is the first time we are recognized nation wide. I would like to acknowledge TATV production team of volunteers. Without their dedication and enthusiasm, Turkish American Television would not thrive this far. I would like to share this award with all of them, our sponsors, and the Turkish American community at large.” Thank you ATAA, FTAA, and TACC, for honoring TATV with “Excellence in Media” Award!
