CNN, TCM receive Peabody Awards | Radio & TV Talk

4/1: CNN, TCM receive Peabody Awards | Radio & TV Talk: "University of Georgia’s prestigious Peabody Awards bestowed honors to two Atlanta-based networks: CNN and Turner Classic Movies.

The Peabody board gave kudos to CNN’s “unparalleled coverage” of the presidential campaign coverage, citing its “state-of-the-art technology and a small army of reporters, producers and analysts.”

CNN’s sister station TCM also received a nod: “It’s a wonderful network, this dedicated presenter and preserver of vintage films, and after 20 years, no other in the cable specturm has stayed truer to its original mission.”

UGA’s Grady College of Journalsim and Mass Communication spread its electic mix of awards to a wide array of electronic media, from TV (e.g. ABC’s “Lost,” HBO’s “Entourage” and “John Adams” and AMC’s “Breaking Bad”) to online (the New York Times Web site and the Onion satirical sendup of cable TV news) to radio (a lucid explanation of the financial crisis by NPR and “This American Life”)."
