Daytime Drama Sweepstakes sweep soap fan off her feet!

ATWT's Martha Byrne Does the Honors!

Includes correct responses to the questions. Were YOU right?

As the World Turns actress Martha Byrne and New York City Film Commissioner Katherine Oliver selected the winner of the Daytime Drama Sweepstakes, sponsored by the New York City Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre & Broadcasting.

Alice Nolan, a retired school teacher and writer from Beaumont, Texas, won tickets to the Emmy pre-party at Gracie Mansion hosted by Mayor Bloomberg on May 20, tickets to the Daytime Emmy awards at Radio City Music Hall on May 21, tickets to the Broadway show Sly Fox on May 22, accommodations at the Waldorf Astoria, and a subscription to Soap Opera Digest.

After randomly selecting the winner from hundreds of entries, Byrne and Commissioner Oliver personally called Nolan with the news. “I was so excited I just couldn’t believe it,” Nolan said.

Nolan has been a fan of As the World Turns since it first came on the air. She met the eligibility requirements for the contest by correctly answering questions about the New York City daytime television industry. Nolan correctly responded that the four daytime dramas currently taping in New York City are All My Children, Guiding Light, One Life to Live and As The World Turns. She also correctly identified All My Children and One Life to Live as the New York-based soaps created by Agnes Nixon currently on the air, and answered that the year of Guiding Light’s radio debut was 1937.

Nolan plans to bring her daughter, Tiffany Jehorek, to the events as her guest, and is also excited about visiting New York. “What can you say about New York? It’s just a wonderful city,” she said.

The Daytime Drama sweepstakes was sponsored by the Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting to highlight excellence among New York City’s daytime television community.

“As the soap operas highlighted in this sweepstakes demonstrate, New York City has a long history of outstanding daytime television,” Katherine Oliver, Commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting, said. “It is no surprise that this year, New York-based television shows have received 113 Emmy nominations. We are pleased to draw attention to the contributions that both these shows and the Emmy awards make to New York City.”

New York City’s production industry employs 100,000  New Yorkers and generates $5 billion annually. Last year, the number of television shooting days in New York City rose to 7,294, a 45 percent increase over 2002.
