Created by Richard Harris, Executive Producer of Spirit of Nevada and Founder of the Richard Harris Law Firm, the show began in 2017 to promote the firm's deep Nevada roots by showcasing the unique aspects of Nevada's culture, history, and natural beauty. The show, hosted by Samantha Chian, features various locations of interest throughout the entire State of Nevada.

"Nearly eight years ago, I sat with Sam and presented the idea of Spirit of Nevada with no idea of what it would become," said Harris. "After more than 200 episodes, I couldn't be more proud. Sam has been integral to the growth of the show, and has made this show more special than I could have ever imagined. I have always wanted to highlight the parts of Nevada that people don't typically see, and I'm glad that Spirit of Nevada is accomplishing the mission so successfully. Thank you to Sam for all the care she has put into this show and how hard she and the entire team have worked to make this a success. Here's to more episodes and more Emmy® Awards!"

The NATAS seeks to recognize outstanding achievements in television and allied media by conferring annual awards of merit in each Chapter's designated award region. The presentation of these awards is intended to be an incentive for the continued pursuit of excellence for those working in the television and digital media industry and to focus public attention on outstanding cultural, educational, technological, entertainment, news, informational programming and craft achievements in television and online.

"I'm absolutely honored to receive this Emmy® Award," said Chian. "Building this show with Rick has been great - seeing his vision come to life is amazing. As the host, co-writer and an editor on the show, Spirit of Nevada is very close to my heart. Being nominated alongside the other programs was a delight - for Spirit of Nevada to win the category was shocking, but rewarding. Thank you to the Academy for the recognition!"

Beyond the sparkling lights of the big cities of Las Vegas and Reno lies a State filled with spectacular natural beauty, hidden one-of-a-kind hangouts, and a deep, rich Wild Western history. Since the earliest days of our State's history, people have worked together to make Nevada great, welcoming citizens of all cultures and beliefs and advocating for the causes that bring us together. The Richard Harris Law Firm stands by its commitment to enrich the communities we serve, and we are proud to present Spirit of Nevada-featuring exceptional places, charities, and other organizations-making Nevada a better place.
