Kenneth Dean’s television contributions honored
Kenneth Dean’s 50 years of service in the television industry stands apart as unique and special. During his time at WLBT in Jackson, he built the nation’s first bi-racial commercial television station, which became the first black-owned network station in the country.
This year, as the only National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) Gold Circle inductee, he will be honored at the 2013 Southeast EMMY Awards.
