The news team at NBC26 (WGBA-TV) has won the prestigious Chicago/Midwest Regional Emmy® award for Best Morning Newscast.

The NBC26 Today team won the Emmy for Outstanding Achievement for News Programming - Morning Newscast: Smaller Markets (51+) for team coverage of the historic snowstorm that slammed Northeast Wisconsin earlier this year. The storm dumped 24 inches of snow on Green Bay, collapsing roofs, closing schools and essentially shutting down the majority of our viewing area.

The Chicago/Midwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences presents the Emmy® awards in our region.

NBC26 had crews canvass the viewing area in April 2018 to give viewers the most complete coverage of the "Storm of the Century." It was the second largest snowstorm in Green Bay history.
