Last Saturday night at The National Press Club, TIVA members from all around the area descended upon the red carpet for a night full of food, fun, and award show dreams come true. TIVA-DC (Television Internet and Video Association of Washington D.C.) pulled out all the stops this year and put on another event to remember.
Arch Campbell: A Host With Chutzpah
Local television personality and entertainment guru Arch Campbell delivered a signature performance as he hosted the night with style. Arch’s timeless wit and dry humor left no dull moments.

And the Award Goes To…
The night was divided by the talents of four main presenters, each of which is a local celebrity in their own right.
The bubbly and charismatic Monika Samtani opened up the night with the first round of awards.
Monika was followed by the multi-talented Rick Kain.
Rick yielded the presenter’s podium to the upbeat personality of Tara Garwood.
Finally, local legend Ken Arnold closed out the final awards.
