YouTube Community Receives “Foundation Award” from IRTS

The YouTube Community received a “Foundation Award” from the International Radio and Television Society Foundation. This is a prestigious award that has been given to such accomplished broadcasters as David Letterman, Donald Trump and Katie Couric (who attended the Nov. 16 awards breakfast in NYC to present an award to CBS Correspondent Kimberly Dozier).

I’m honored to have received this award on behalf of the YouTube Community. Here’s a video announcing the award, and showing some of the highlights of the event. I’m humbled, and grateful that YouTube passed the award to us. I’ll be sending the glass trophy (once I super glue it back together) to other YouTubers, and hopefully it will circulate the globe in videos.

  1. NICE!!! thats awesome. bet it was fun to schmooze with people there. how many people knew you? better yet how many were curious to learn more about you tube? couldnt have picked a better person to accept! thanks!

  2. Congrats, Kevin! One reason I think they chose you was because they knew you would give an entertaining acceptance speech. Hey, why don’t you send that thing to me…I have some super-glue! LOL!~Toni

  3. hEY NALTS CAN YOU SEND THE TROPHY TO ME I NEED TO MAKE A VIDEO REALLY SOON SO COULD YOU SEND IT TO ME jUST EMAIL ME for more info PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GOD BLESS

  4. I just broke down and bought myself a nalts hat, which is kind of a waste, since I don’t wear hats, but I want Katie Couric to talk to me in case I ever run into her. Maybe she’ll hit on me too.

  5. It’s raining pine needles this time of year in Marshall, covering the ground with a soft red carpet of welcome for Katie, a red carpet that leads right up to my front door and heart.

    There. Is that better? The link is even more girlee in this post. NOW can I have her?

  6. “Please send Katie Couric down here to the piney woods. I pine for her…got some wood I wanna show her”…….OMG thats hilarious Marquis,now youve lowered yourself down to my level ;-). NALTS,so did you really break the youtube trophy or not?

  7. “The Foundation Award was established in 1994 to honor outstanding communications professionals for their accomplishments within the given year. Recipients have included David Letterman, Diane Sawyer, David E. Kelley, Howard Stringer, Leo Hindery, Katie Couric, L. Lowry Mays, and Charlie Rose.”……..communications professionals? Exactly which video was this award for? my upskirt video or my “loud & long fart in public”? {:-O

  8. I think it was the upskirt video (see link), Steve, where “You really blew the lid off of nookie” (‘Broadcast News’-1987) but Nalts might think the fart thing was more relevant to Youtube’s contribution to communications. Hee hee hee hee. I tickle myself.
