KOCT WINS TELLY!

ADOBE RANCHOS OF NORTH COUNTY

“The Story of the Kelly Family”
                  

KOCT - Your Community Television Channel has been awarded a Bronze "People's Choice Telly" for the feature "A Really Big Rancho - The Story of the Kelly Family". This story is one of six segments found in the Adobes and Ranchos of North County collection and brings viewers into the Adobe where Marvin Sipple, Susan Kelly, Pat Kelly and Karen Kelly tell the historic story of the Kelly Family.  The series was produced by KOCT's Executive Director, Tom Reeser, KOCT's Station Manager, Jacob Rush, and U-T North County columnist Lola Sherman.  Sherman was also the script writer for the series.  The series was narrated by Harvey Kaufman, and edited by Miguel Blanco.

KOCT launched "Adobes and Ranchos of North County" in February of 2015 with a celebration and sneak preview at the Oceanside Civic Center Library.  These six 30-minute programs provide a fascinating historical restrospective on the lives and land of the local ranchers who helped shape what we now call North County, San Diego.

This program was made possible by a generous grant from The Parker Foundation (Gerald and Inez Parker).  Click here to view the full Union Tribune "Adobes and Ranchos of North County" article.  Please visit KOCT.ORG Video on Demand to view this video.
