Zennie62Media Streamy Awards note: Zennie62 on YouTube has been nominated for the 2019 9th Annual Streamy Awards Dec 13th. I decided to get back in and see what the other side of the web video awards universe was like as a competitor. Six years ago, I covered and helped promote the International Academy of Web Television (IAWTV) Awards. Here’s me interviewing Megan O’Neil, who interviewed me about my YouTube channel in 2011 for SocialTimes.com (which has been acquired by Mediabistro):
