“Thanks to all who offered congratulations on this special award, I appreciate it very much!” Beninati wrote on Twitter. “It means a great deal to me to be nominated and selected by my peers, colleagues, and friends in the DC sports media. I am honored and humbled, thank you!”
The 16-time Capital Emmy Award winner and Board of Governors Award recipient, Beninati has been NBC Sports Washington’s play-by-play guy for the Capitals for 25-plus years and just celebrated his 25th anniversary as partners with Craig Laughlin in early November.
Other notable local winners honored include Mark Zuckerman (DC Sportswriter of the Year), Bruce Cunningham (Maryland Sportscaster of the Year), Jeff Zrebiec (Maryland Sportswriter of the Year), Lane Casadonte (Virginia Sportscaster of the Year), Wes McElroy (Virginia Sportscaster of the Year), and David Teel (Virginia Sportswriter of the Year).
Congratulations, Joe B!
