St. Louis Community College graduate Paul Langdon won his first Mid America Regional Emmy Award for Best Audio-Live or Post Production for the program “I Love Jazz” on HEC-TV.
Langdon is the weekend supervisor at KCFV-FM, the radio station located at the college’s Florissant Valley campus. He graduated in 2012 with an associate degree in communications-broadcasting. He also won the 2012 Phillip H. Grogg Leadership Award at KCFV.
Langdon started at KCFV in 2010, and after graduating from STLCC-Florissant Valley, he went on to get his bachelor’s degree in media studies from the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
Langdon started with HEC-TV in summer 2014 and began working as the audio engineer for its in-house and field productions. He soon moved up to producing segments for multiple shows, including “Two On The Aisle,” the nation’s longest running television theatre review show.
“Paul, as a student at STLCC-Florissant Valley, was driven to excel,” said Paul Huddleston, general manager of KCFV-FM. “Now working in TV for only three years, he has been recognized for that drive and commitment to excellence. We are so proud of Paul’s accomplishments and glad he has remained on the campus, working with our students.”
The Emmy won by Langdon was the first and only award for the show “I Love Jazz,” which was created and hosted by Don Wolff for many years. That show concluded with Wolff’s passing in 2015.
