Documentary Featuring KSBJ and NGEN Nominated For Regional Emmy

The documentary “In Their Shoes” which features KSBJ and NGEN on-air personalities has been nominated for a Regional Emmy. Winners will be announced on November 16 at the 2019 Lone Star Emmy Awards Show.

“In Their Shoes” invited listeners to look through the eyes of Houston’s homeless, as we walked in their shoes and discovered how we can serve the least of these. For three days and two nights, KSBJ and NGEN along with Star of Hope Mission went undercover on Houston’s streets, to understand the plight of Houston’s homeless population.

All they had to sustain themselves was $10, a bus pass, donated clothes and two tents. The group struggled to find meals, were kicked out of a restaurant, and became virtually invisible to people they encountered in downtown Houston. In most cases, the only compassion they found came from the homeless. The on-air personalities knew their experience would in no way compare to what it is truly like to be homeless, but this joint effort with the Star of Hope was designed to raise awareness about how it feels to walk in their shoes and how to help through the Star of Hope.

“It was hard. We could not even fathom doing this for a week, much less months or years,” shares Carder Price, KSBJ Morning Show co-host. “And as desperate as we felt, there was a difference. We knew we were going home in three days.”
