TV reporter Charu Kumarhia wins southeast regional Emmy award
Charu Kumarhia, a TV reporter for WLOS in Asheville, North Carolina, won an Emmy from the southeast chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS). The 2007 regional Emmy awards ceremony was held in June at the Buckhead Grand Hyatt. Kumarhia shared the Emmy with a photographer, Leighton Grant, for a series of stories titled "Remembering Mitch Carver." Carver, a pilot with the U.S. Army, was killed when his OH-58 Kiowa Warrior reconnaissance helicopter crashed near Mosul, Iraq. Kumarhia and Grant traveled with the deceased soldier's family and covered his burial at the Arlington National Cemetry, where Carver had wanted to be buried even though his hometown ties were strong. Kumarhia, who grew up in Jonesboro, Georgia, is a graduate of Grady College. Previously, she worked at a cable station in Forsyth County and was a reporter and bureau chief at WAAY-TV in Huntsville, Alabama
