Newsweek Broadcasting

Many efforts have been made to successfully translate the editorial cartoon from the newspaper to the television screen. Newsweek Broadcasting has successfully done this, capturing the very essence of what is best in the world of editorial cartoons within the framework of 15 to 20 seconds of air time. Members of the Peabody Board feel that executive producer Bernard J. Shusman, producer John Peaslee, and their able staff of cartoonists have made a significant contribution to American television and for this contribution, a Peabody Award.
