‘76 Presidential Debates

League of Women Voters, Jim Karayn

A Peabody Award to Jim Karayn and the League of Women Voters, Washington, DC, for the ‘76 Presidential Debates. This outstanding public service came to reality after persistence against formidable obstacles, resulting in a series of joint appearances of the major presidential and vice presidential candidates during the 1976 political campaigns. The Peabody Board encourages the continuation of such debates as a regular quadrennial fixture in the national TV-radio schedule with hope that the idea develops into a true debate on national and international issues.
