Philadelphia area women Meredith Scardino wins writing Emmy for one of my Fav shows The Colbert Report
A proud mom, Anne Scardino wrote me on Saturday night to tell me her daughter:
Meredith Scardino, Radnor High School grad, won a second Emmy Saturday night
for Best Writing in a Variety Show, along with the writers of the Colbert
Report. Scardino is the sole woman writer for the show, and won in 2008 in
the same category. The Creative Arts Emmy Awards took place in LA.
Another fav show: The Cash Cab with Caroline Waxler, Meredith Scardino, Liz Levin
Anne also tells me that Meredith began her writing career when he the fourth grade at Ithan Elementary, she won a writing contest for Delaware County schools with her story “Ghost in the Guestroom.” Also in the fourth grade, she took a Saturday cartoon class at Harcum, where she wrote a comic strip “The Nosers,” a family with prolific noses. Meredith also played tennis and lacrosse at Radnor and was captain of the women’s lacrosse team at Cornell.
I know I am her mother, but she is quite a combo of beauty and brains.
