Jerry Reynolds, host of the nationally syndicated CarProUSA radio show is a Telly award winner once again! Reynolds recently won his 3rd and 4th Telly award for his video test drive of the 2019 Dodge Challenger Redeye, the 797-horse speedster from Fiat Chrysler. In fact, this one video won Telly awards in two different categories.
The Telly Awards are in their 40th Anniversary season and annually showcase the best work created within television and across video for all screens. Entries number in the thousands and come from all 50 states and five continents. The Telly Awards Judging Council is a group of more than 200 working professionals who have previously won Telly Awards and have demonstrated expertise in the categories they review.
2019 Dodge Challenger Redeye
The 2019 Challenger Redeye video test drive actually won two awards in two different categories. If you have not seen this video, take a look. It’s been viewed on YouTube almost 216,000 times.
Rolls-Royce Wraith and Ford-F-150
The first Telly Award the Car Pro won was for his video test drive of the $397,000 Rolls-Royce Wraith:
The Car Pro won his second Telly in 2016 for his video review of the 2016 Ford F-150:
Of the Redeye video, Jerry Reynolds said: “Of the hundreds of videos I have shot, this one is one of the most memorable ever. Not only was the car itself an incredible beast of a machine, when we shot the line lock (burnout) we knew we only had one shot at it, odds were, the rear tires couldn’t take it twice.” We were later told they had to be replaced after this video.
Reynolds continued: “The one mistake I made was not turning off the air conditioning. Smoke quickly filled the car and I had to bail out of the car, which is also on the video, but the shoot was complete, so it worked out fine, except I had trouble breathing clearly for almost a week.”
The video was shot and edited by The Country Network that has been the producer for all of the Telly award winning videos.
“TCN does an incredible job on our videos, but they knocked it out of the park with this one,” added Reynolds. “We had our Car Pro USA Executive Producer, Amy Plemons, on site that day. Amy is an Emmy-nominated TV producer herself, and added to the success of this effort,” according to Reynolds.
The Telly award honors video and television made for all screens and is judged by The Telly Award Judging Council; a group of leading video and television experts from some of the most prestigious companies in entertainment, publishing, advertising, and emerging technology.
