The 37th Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards took place over the weekend and CLASS faculty member Sandra Gin was among the honorees.
Gin received her third Daytime Emmy as a producer for the now cancelled courtroom show, Cristina's Court. First airing in 2006, the series has won the Emmy for Outstanding Courtroom Program for the past three years.
Gin is a former anchor for KHOU Channel 11, and has been a producer for two nationally-syndicated Fox courtroom shows, Judge Alex (2005-07) and Cristina’s Court (2007-09). A 30-year veteran of television both on camera and behind the scenes, she has received 13 Emmy awards and nominations and numerous national and state journalism honors.
