TV program catches teens doing good; wins 'Angel'

Center Street, a television magazine show created expressly for teenagers and produced by the Church, has won a Silver Angel Award from the non-profit Excellence in Media.

The show appears on the VISN (Vision Interfaith Satellite Network) cable network, of which the Church is a charter member."Center Street features five hosts weaving together a lively half-hour of values, youth news and career profiles," said Arnold R. Augustin, the Church's VISN relations director.

"The program showcases today's teenagers doing good things for others. It's a television magazine program where teens can find encouragement in pursuing the positive values generally lacking in today's society. It's a positive, uplifting alternative to today's television programming. It's a place where relevant issues are discussed."

The Angel Awards, founded in 1977, are given to honor creative people in all forms of media who are turning out works of excellence that have either high moral, spiritual or social impact.

Excellence in Media traces its roots to 40 years ago when a small band of men and women in Hollywood, concerned about the moral decline of media productions, decided they would do something to try and counteract that influence.
