Institutional Award: Westinghouse Broadcasting Company, Inc. for the Boston Conference on Programming and the High Quality of Its Public Service Broadcasting

Westinghouse Broadcasting Company, Inc.

The Boston Conference of the Westinghouse Broadcasting Company brought into sharp focus the significance of public service broadcasting—both to this company and to the industry. The Conference was in a sense a creative sounding board, the message of which was more attention to better local public service programming. Westinghouse merits special recognition for this Conference, but also for the high quality of its own public service broadcasting. Every Westinghouse-operated station reflected in 1957 projects and programs too numerous to mention, the admirable concept which is hereby recognized with the Special Peabody Radio-Television Award for meritorious and distinguished public service.
