Communication Alumnus Wins Emmy Award

High Point University Alumni Emmy winner

High Point University Alumni Emmy winnerHIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 11, 2012 – Greg Fox, a 1983 High Point University graduate, won an Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for a series of investigative reports.

Fox is currently working for WESH-TV 2NBC, an Orlando based channel, as the political and government reporter. His winning investigative reports were on red light camera enforcement systems that exposed potentially illegal actions on the part of cities and counties which easily dismiss cases in which drivers are represented by attorneys, but continue to prosecute people who cannot adequately represent themselves in court.

“I credit HPU and its faculty for helping me to build the foundation of my journalism skills, which ultimately led to this achievement,” said Fox. “I still remember the days when our HPU TV studio consisted of two VHS cameras and a couple of lights and tri-pods. But it was exciting to learn the basics in what has evolved into a long and satisfying career.”

This is Fox’s second Emmy Award; his first honored a series of reports on the harsh political and economic conditions on the people of Cuba. He is also the recipient of many other awards including two-time winner of the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Television Political Journalism.

After graduating from HPU with a Bachelor of Arts in communication, Fox started his career at WGHP Fox 8 in High Point. He has also served as an adjunct professor of communications at the University of Central Florida and Rollins College since 1996.
