News 8 WROC wins two New York Emmy Awards


ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — News 8 WROC was recognized during the 64th annual New York Emmy Awards on October 30.

The station won Best Evening Newscast for the 6 p.m. newscast and anchor Adam Chodak walked away with the award for Best Talent in the commentary/editorial category.

The accumulation of awards received by News 8 in 2021 makes WROC-TV the most honored news organization in the Rochester television market.
