New York, NY – Able Channel, a leading streaming service dedicated to health care programming, is thrilled to announce its nomination for “Together We Are Able” for the prestigious New York Emmy Award in the category of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. The nomination recognizes Able Channel’s exceptional commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive media landscape through its groundbreaking programming and initiatives.

The New York Emmy Awards, organized by the New York Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS), honors excellence in television broadcasting within the New York region. The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion category acknowledges media organizations that actively contribute to fostering inclusivity and representation across all aspects of programming and production.

“Together We Are Able is program (and a series) that is hosted by gold-medal winning Paralympian Mallory Weggemann and tells the stories of 10 people, who through their lives and life’s work, have redefined what the word “Able” means. It’s the first program that I am aware of that features all people living with various disabilities telling the world what life is like for them and how despite their challenges they have used their abilities to work to make the world a better place. We are grateful to all who entrusted their stories to us and to our Able team for producing such an important program.” Said Brian McCourt, CEO of Able Channel and the programs creator.

Able Channel’s nomination underscores its unwavering dedication to creating a platform that amplifies underrepresented voices and champions diversity in the society and industry. The channel has consistently demonstrated its commitment to addressing the lack of diverse narratives in mainstream media and providing a platform for marginalized communities to share their stories.

“We are incredibly honored to be recognized by the New York Emmy Awards for our efforts in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion,” said Brian McCourt, CEO at Able Channel. “At Able Channel, we firmly believe in the power of media to shape perceptions and foster empathy. This nomination reflects our ongoing commitment to showcasing a wide range of perspectives and promoting a more inclusive media landscape.”

Able Channel has pioneered innovative programming initiatives that celebrate diversity and challenge societal norms. Through thought-provoking documentaries, inclusive talk shows, and inspiring storytelling, the channel has created a space where underrepresented communities can be seen, heard, and valued. By collaborating with diverse content creators, Able Channel has nurtured a vibrant community of voices that enrich the media landscape.

The NY Emmy nomination serves as a testament to Able Channel’s dedication to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion both on and off the screen. The recognition not only honors their achievements but also highlights the collective efforts of the talented individuals who work tirelessly to produce high-quality, inclusive content. The winners of the New York Emmy Awards will be announced during a prestigious gala event later this year. This year’s event promises to be a celebration of the outstanding talent and achievements within the industry, further emphasizing the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in television programming.
