Institutional Award: WCKT-TV for Compiling an Envious Record of Outstanding Investigative Reporting during 1975
WCKT, Miami, has a long and outstanding record of investigative news reporting. Under the guidance of its distinguished news director, Gene Strul, WCKT has, in the opinion of the Peabody Board, added considerable luster to its record with its 1975 line-up of investigative news efforts. Many of these efforts have branched out into national investigations by law enforcement agencies and governmental groups. Others have had considerable impact on public affairs in the south Florida area. Few stations can point to such a continuing and dedicated effort. For what WSKT, with its dedicated news director and his staff, has accomplished, a George Foster Peabody Award.
