Mario Armstrong wins an Emmy

Mario Armstrong, the Baltimore techie and media personality, won his first Emmy Award last week.

Armstrong, who is president of Mario Armstrong Media, was named Best TV Show Host/Moderator for his work on the Maryland Public Television Program “You Can Afford College.”

The National Capital Chesapeake Bay chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences had given the award as part of 20 categories at the 53rd Annual Capital NATAS Emmy Awards in Washington, D.C.

“I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Maryland Public Television for believing in me,” Armstrong said in a statement.

In the 2010 “You Can Afford College” program, Armstrong gave parents and students a plan for finding financial aid.

But his MPT stint isn’t the only place you can find him. He’s continually helped consumers on latest technology issues, trends and products on different radio and TV segments. Armstrong has been on CNN, NBC’s “Today Show,” heard on WYPR, NPR’s “Morning Edition,” and he hosts a daily digital-lifestyle talk show on SiriusXM radio.
