A Sunday Journal
WWL-TV is no stranger to the Peabody Awards. In 1975, this New Orleans giant presented with uniqueness and beauty a striking series of exceptionally well-done programs titled A Sunday Journal. Host Jim Metcalf blended each facet of the programs together with skill and aplomb. His efforts were marked by good writing, excellent photography, and artistic presentation. In the opinion of the Peabody Board, A Sunday Journal is an excellent example of what a dedicated television station can do, utilizing its own community and its own staff, both to their best advantage.
