LPB TO BROADCAST THE 2020 ANGEL AWARD® One-hour special honors everyday Louisianans doing extraordinary good for children

Louisiana Public Broadcasting (LPB) in partnership with the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation, presents The Angel Award®, a one-hour special, airing on LPB October 19 at 8 p.m. Additionally, the program will livestream online at www.lpb.org, on the LPB App, and on the Facebook pages of both LPB and the Foundation.

The Foundation normally hosts the honorees at a live gala event, but decided in favor of a broadcast program this year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Angel Award® will be presented to nine everyday Louisianans who are working to make life better for the state’s children. The program will feature segments on each of the honorees that showcase their work and allow viewers to see first-hand the impact that work has on children. For more on The Angel Award® and this year’s honorees, go to www.bcbslafoundation.org. LPB has also created a page dedicated to The Angel Award at www.lpb.org/angelaward.

“LPB has served the children of Louisiana for over 45 years and has become a trusted source for educational and entertaining programs,” said Beth Courtney, President and CEO of Louisiana Public Broadcasting. “These nine honorees hail from parishes all across Louisiana so we are proud to broadcast this special, highlighting their extraordinary work and the difference they are making in the lives of children in our state.”

“Since 1995, the Foundation has recognized more than 200 Angels across the state. This program has been a springboard for many nonprofits to reach new heights. We are so pleased and grateful to LPB for working with us to honor these exceptional individuals,” said Michael Tipton, president of the Blue Cross Foundation.
