Peabody Awards announced

Press Releases: "Thirty-five recipients of the 67th Annual Peabody Awards were announced today by the University of Georgia`s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. The winners, chosen by the Peabody board as the best in electronic media for 2007, were named in a ceremony in the Peabody Gallery on the UGA campus.

The latest Peabody recipients reflect great diversity in content, genre and source of origination. Recipients included The Colbert Report, Comedy Central`s cable-news satire, and A Journey Across Afghanistan: Opium and Roses, a documentary from Bulgaria`s Balkan News Corporation (bTV). Whole Lotta Shakin, the Texas Heritage Music Foundation`s rollicking public-radio series chronicling the 1950s heyday of rockabilly music received the award, as did Univision`s Ya Es Hora, a public-service campaign that taught legal aliens how to apply for American citizenship."
