James Clemens alum contends for TV foundation award

MADISON – Colin Beyersdorf of Madison has been nominated for the prestigious Television Academy Foundation’s 42nd College Television Awards.

Beyersdorf is an alumnus of James Clemens High School. Currently, he works as Director of Sports Production for Auburn University’s Eagle Eye TV.

The foundation’s annual College Television Awards recognize and reward excellence in student-produced programs from colleges across the country. At a red-carpet awards ceremony, television celebrities will announce winners in the competition on April 1 at the Television Academy in North Hollywood, Calif.

Beyersdorf has been nominated, along with two of his classmates from Auburn University, in the Sports category for “Sports Night in Auburn.” Beyersdorf served as a writer on the project, which Television Academy members selected from more than 132 submissions from colleges and universities nationwide.

“Sports Night in Auburn,” a weekly sports program, is broadcast on the university’s student-run television station, Eagle Eye TV. The nominated episode features Auburn’s basketball win over the Ole Miss Rebels; gymnast Suni Lee’s perfect 10 on the beam; and updates for Auburn teams in golf, softball and tennis.

“Coming from a small town in Alabama, I didn’t grow up thinking I could work in television,” Beyersdorf said. “This recognition shows me that I can have a future in this field, and winning would just cement that message to myself.”

“The Television Academy Foundation could also help me achieve my career goals by putting me in touch with people in the industry,” Beyersdorf said.

In 2021 at James Clemens, Beyersdorf was on his way to early recognition for his work with television. Fellow students and he in JetsPress film studies at James Clemens submitted videography projects that won awards with the All-American High School Film Festival, the world’s largest high-school film festival. Beyersdorf was recognized for his work, “Strings Attached,” in the category, Broadcast Journalism: Sports Feature.

College Television Awards nominees for 2023 will participate in professional-development activities from March 29 through April 1, including a special screening of all nominated projects. The nominees will network with industry professionals at a breakfast and visit Hollywood studios.

Established in 1959 as the charitable arm of the Television Academy, the Television Academy Foundation works to preserve the legacy of television while educating and inspiring those who will shape its future.
