NTN Receives Top Business Honor from U.S.
The Narrative Television Network received one of four national
awards from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in February 1998 when it
was honored with the Blue Chip Award. The Blue Chip Enterprise
Initiative was established to identify entrepreneurs who have dealt
successfully with significant challenges and to make their stories
widely available as models for other small-business people. It also
is a tribute to the millions of small-business owners and managers
whose efforts and commitment have long been vital to the continuing
health of our national economy. The Initiative is sponsored by
MassMutual-The Blue Chip Company; the U.S. Chamber of Commerce;
and Nation's Business magazine.
