CBS-TV and Radio

During 1957, the Columbia Broadcasting System provided news in depth by going behind current happenings to identify related problems, underlying causes, and influential individuals-as exemplified by the exclusive Moscow interview with Khrushchev on Face the Nation, the documentary filmed behind rebel lines, Algeria Aflame, and such series as See It Now, 20th Century, and on its New York radio station, This Is New York. In recognition of this depth and range, with a special nod to each of the programs just mentioned, a Peabody Award for News Radio and Television is hereby presented to CBS.
