Help/Vote for Henni Espinosa of Bacolod and San Francisco in the Fab Over 40 Contest

She made it as a simple girl from Bacolod to become an Emmy Award-winning television news reporter.  Henni Espinosa made history in June 15, 2013 when she made Filipino television history when she took home an Emmy as the host, executive producer and writer of “The Filipino Champions of SOMA,” under the “Public/Current/Community Affairs-Program/Special” category.

It is the first full-length news documentary produced by a Filipino journalist for a Filipino-owned network that has been awarded the Emmy. Espinosa is the senior reporter and one of the anchors of ABS-CBN International-The Filipino Channel’s (TFC) Balitang America.

Featuring three Filipinos in the South of Market area of San Francisco who do extraordinary things for the community, the documentary was aired worldwide last year through TFC and, later, on the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), as part of its Asian-American Heritage Month

An Emmy Award is the most important recognition in the US television industry and corresponds to the Academy Award for film, the Tony Award for theater and the Grammy Award for music. But the award was even more gratifying to Espinosa “because we were up against mainstream stations.”

Today, in the time of pandemic, Henni hopes to win the Fab over 40 contest of NewBeauty Magazine.
