Matt Weber gives a monologue on the set of The Lens with his daughter, Rose

WATERTOWN, MASS. (April 17, 2018) – The CatholicTV Network is pleased to announce that Matt Weber, host of The Lens, has been nominated for a Boston/New England Emmy® in the 41st Annual Boston/New England Emmy® Awards. Weber shares this honor with his unique co-host for the nominated segment: his 8-month-old daughter, Rose.

On his unconventional co-host, Weber said, “My wife and I were double booked that day for things we both had to do and our childcare fell through. So, instead of trying to figure out another last minute option or having one of us cancel our commitments, I just decided to incorporate Rose into my commitment -- which was hosting a TV show. So, in writing the script, I made it about Rose, multitasking, and the wisdom of my darling daughter. Necessity is the mother of invention, which involved this father and daughter teaming up to invent together.”

Matt Weber’s nomination in the Commentator/Editorialist category is his third Emmy nomination. Rose’s nomination as co-host/writer is her first.

CatholicTV would like to congratulate the Webers on their nomination and wish them the best of luck at the awards ceremony, which will be held on Saturday, June 2, 2018 at the Marriott Boston Copley Place.

The Lens, which examines what’s trending through a faith-based lens, premieres biweekly on Mondays at 9pm ET on CatholicTV. Full episodes can be viewed on demand at http://catholictv.com/shows/the-lens.
