Michael Hammett, a Phoenix public information officer, has been nominated for a 2011 Rocky Mountain Emmy award for a "Building Phoenix" segment on PHX 11, the city's news and information station.

Hammett was nominated for excellence in television production in the "Historic/Cultural" segment category. Hammett wrote, produced and hosted the piece, which explored the transformation of a 1960s bank into the Vig Uptown, a restaurant at 16th Street and Bethany Home Road.

The building was designed by famed Arizona architect Ralph Haver. The segment highlighted the Adaptive Reuse Program, which streamlines the process of turning older buildings into new businesses.

"Building Phoenix" premiered in 2006 and is produced by the Public Information Office, Planning and Development Department and PHX 11.

The program has received previous Rocky Mountain Emmy Award nominations and several Telly Awards, among other honors.

PHX 11 is broadcast on Cox Cable Channel 11 and accessible on phoenix.gov. As the city's primary source for news and information, PHX 11 produces feature stories, specials, community news programs and interview/discussion shows with elected officials.

For more information, visit phoenix.gov/11. Residents also may follow PHX 11 at twitter.com/watchphx11 or become a fan on Facebook.
