- Hearty Hello!
I hope everyone is staying cool. It's been over 100 several days this summer in Oklahoma. I've spent most of the summer editing the latest season of my music show, "Studio 66" and getting it ready for air this fall. I'll be sure to share once it's ready for air. I also directed a couple of state debates for the station I work for. I have at least one freelance event lined up next month. Hopefully there will be a few more soon. Let me know if you need help with an event. All of our pets are doing well. We are OK as well. By the way, AFT-ID is looking for ukuleles, and acoustic guitars for students. If you happen to have one or the other, let the group know! aft-id.org.
- 4/27/2022 Update
I have been quite busty since my last post.Not everything I have to share is good. On December 10th, while I was live directing the TCC evening graduation ceremony from the front of house, an EF4 tornado hit my hometown of Mayfield, KY and tore it apart. My friends and family are OK, but the town is still struggling to rebuild. I visited there twenty days after the tornado, and the amount of damage is well beyond what I thought it would be. My host saw my video, and asked me to be a guest on my own show. So, I video directed, TD'd, and answered his questions all at the same time. The non-profit I'm part of, AFT-ID, sent a load of musical instruments to Mayfield to replace those that were lost. In happier news, I've started live directing live in person events. It's a little like directing television, only the cues I'm giving are things happening on stage in front of a live audience. There is someone there directing video for the large I-MAG screens, but I've run the whole show for a couple of events now. One of these was for a Sonic ownership group who had their convention in Norman, OK. Last week, I was hired to direct a multi-day Sonic owners group convention in Albuquerque, NM. It was a lot of long days and hard work, but it turned out to be a great experience. There was a lot of troubleshooting, and technical issues leading up to opening day, but we sorted those out, and the clients and the attendees had a great time. I enjoyed the experience, and I can't wait to do it again!
- September Update
I've been keeping myself fairly busy. We are back into production season at the TV station. Our control room has been renovated, and the space is used much more wisely now. I was just the subject of a podcast for a senior student from Murray State University over in Murray, KY. I'll share that when I get the link to it. I hope that I didn't sound too awful. I have also directed a few live events including a couple of dinners, and a virtual meeting. I'm working with Acoustic Freight Train again. I recorded their Riverwalk Rally concert in 4K, and I'm putting those videos on their social media pages. So far the response has been great! I'm not done with all of them yet, I had two other events last week, so I'm posting these as I get to them. If you want to see more from Acoustic Freight Train, check out Acoustic Freight Train on Facebook. There are several more videos there, and several more that will be shared soon. Otherwise, I may be working on a couple of other projects soon if it works out. Fingers crossed, and see you soon!

- About Me | Emily D. Spivy
WHO AM I? I've worked in multimedia television since 1995. I started at WPSD-TV in Paducah, Kentucky in the video tape room. I moved from there to news photographer, then production director. In 2001 I left to become a director/editor at KTUL-TV in Tulsa, OK. I stayed there until February of 2016. I decided that it was time to move to a different area of the television business, and I now work at KRSU-TV in Claremore, OK. I am a producer/director, meaning I create a lot of the content that airs on our station. In 2017, I won my first Emmy award for "Perspectives - Jana Jae." Since then I have been nominated four other times for my work. I am also a 2004 Telly Award winner for "Tulsa Extreme Makeover." I also produce/direct live college basketball, our regional music show, "Studio 66," and any live events headed up by the university. I direct/technical direct "I Want Answers!" It is an academic game show. I also freelance direct live events. both corporate and non profit events, such as the Tulsa Ballet, the Heroes Ball, and various Sonic ownership group conventions. I am the Chief Marketing Officer for AFT-ID . It is a nonprofit that helps children and schools get musical instruments that they need, but may not be able to afford. We are also working to try and save music in schools. In my spare time, I enjoy still photography, computer gaming, and playing bass guitar.
