The 67th Peabody Awards Ceremony
The Peabody Awards… When I first read that they had been awarded for 67th time in 2008, I realized I had no idea what that was. I just never heard anyone saying, oh, I got a Peabody Award.
So, here is a little introduction to those who also have no idea what this award is for.
The George Foster Peabody Awards – Initially The Peabody Awards were only honoring radio program broadcasts. In 1948 television programs were included and from 1981 on cable television programs are eligible too.
It turns out to be prestigious and I am still shocked I’ve never heard about it. And I know all kinds of awards, but not this one. The Peabody Award is award for electronic media. It is given by University of Georgia graduates of Journalism and Mass Communication, and is awarded annually.
The Peabodys, the oldest awards in broadcasting, are considered among the most prestigious and selective prizes in electronic media. The Peabody Awards recognize excellence and meritorious work by radio and television stations, networks, Webcasters, producing organizations and individuals. The 16-member Peabody Board is a distinguished panel of television critics, industry practitioners and experts in culture and the arts. Selection is made by the Board following review by special screening committees of University of Georgia faculty, students, and staff.
