LOS ANGELES — Honoring excellence in video and television, The Telly Awards have announced this year’s winners with Cooke Media Group receiving four Silver Telly Awards. Winning entries were Episode 5 of the TBN documentary, “Inexplicable: How Christianity Spread to the Ends of the Earth” titled “Asia: The Great Wall and Beyond” and the video titled “The Global Water Center.”

“When your media project is in competition with major companies like HBO, The Discovery Channel, PBS and others, winning four Telly Awards says something about the quality and impact of our work,” commented Phil Cooke. “We’re grateful for the honor and for the attention it brings our clients.”
