CBS Television, Dr. Frank Stanton
Television Public Service: In presenting this Peabody Award to CBS-TV, special recognition goes to President Frank Stanton. Credit also goes to Producers Les Midgley and Av Westin for CBS News special-in-depth reports such as The Ruble War, the pioneering Where We Stand, Parts I and II, Arab Ride-Prologue To The Summit, Face Of Red China and a series on the Middle East, with commendation to Don Hewitt. Several of these comprehensive reports treating the news in depth were issued when the news was still white hot, and they were a significant contribution to public understanding of very important issues.
