Two current and one former Portland Press Herald staffers have been nominated for Emmys at the 39th Boston/New England Awards Ceremony on June 4 in Boston.

Amelia Kunhardt, a former videographer and editor at the paper, was nominated for two Emmys for her videos, including “I’m In No Way a Hero: Navy Veteran Remembers Iwo Jima,” a story focusing on the experiences of 90-year-old World War II veteran Bill Gardner of Portland.

Kunhardt also was nominated for her video work on “Hunger’s Fresh Face,” a story about providing nutritious food to those in need. The segment featured Bonnie McKenney, a Boothbay Harbor native who was writing a cookbook using foods she gets from the state’s food assistance network.

Portland Press Herald photographer Gregory Rec and reporter Susan Kimball were nominated for their work on “Fight Town.”

Rec and Kimball traveled to Lewiston, where they interviewed people who witnessed the historic May 25, 1965, fight there between Muhammad Ali and Sonny Liston.

Liston was knocked out in the first round, making it one of the shortest heavyweight bouts in professional boxing history.
