LOS ANGELES — Independent journalist Peter Musurlian won his third Los Angeles Area Emmy on July 27, at the Academy of Television Arts & Science’s Saban Media Center in North Hollywood.
The 52-minute documentary, “Holocaust Soliloquy,” ran on Los Angeles PBS station KLCS in May 2018, winning the Emmy in the Independent Programming Category.
Earlier this year, Musurlian, who shot, wrote, and edited the entire film, won a First Place Los Angeles Press Club Award for Best Videography, beating out two entries from the powerhouse KCET team.
Musurlian won his first Emmy in 2012, for a 30-minute (solo) documentary, “Burbank’s African Sister City,” which he shot, wrote, narrated, and edited. In 2016, Musurlian, and a team from The Burbank Channel, won Emmys for their various roles in the production of the Mayor’s State-of-the-City video.
Musurlian, who was born in Wisconsin and raised in Torrance, received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern California, and master’s degrees from Baylor University, American University, and the University of Redlands. He has had 10 Emmy nominations since 2002 and has won 24 Golden Mikes from the Radio & Television News Association of Southern California.
