Dallas, TX – The Telly Awards has named Jerry Reynolds, host of the nationally syndicated radio show The Car Pro Show, as a Silver winner in the 36th Annual Telly Awards Automotive Category, for his video review titled “Car Pro Test Drive-2015 F150 King Ranch.” With nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.
The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.
For its 35th season, The Telly Awards once again joined forces with YouTube to give the public the power to view and rate videos submitted as part of the People’s Telly Awards. In addition to recognition from the Silver Telly Council, the judging panel that selects the Telly Awards winners, the Internet community helps decide the People’s Telly Awards winners.
A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit. Less than 10% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Silver Telly, our highest honor. Approximately 25% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Bronze Telly.
“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “Jerry Reynolds, along with Studios 121, and Executive Director Amy Plemons accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
“We put a lot of time in on shooting, then editing these videos every week. My goal is to have our listeners and viewers know all the good and bad about every vehicle I review,” said Reynolds. “I take them inside, outside, and behind the wheel of a new vehicle every week. In the past year, we’ve reviewed everything from entry-level Kia products, to the $400,000 Rolls Royce Wraith,” according to Jerry Reynolds, The Car Pro. The Car Pro Show is heard every weekend on 38 stations from coast-to-coast. The vehicle reviews and videos are also distributed weekly to over 250,000 people who subscribe to Reynolds’ free newsletter, the The Car Pro Weekly.
