Institutional Award: WSB Radio and Television, “The Pastor’s Study” and “Our World Today,” for Meritorious Regional Public Service by Radio and Television
WSB Radio and Television
A pioneer in broadcasting, WSB has for thirty years been promoting the best interests of Atlanta, Georgia and the Southeast. With the advent of television, WSB-TV in 1948 took its place alongside WSB AM-FM and quickly became the same kind of leader in video. These stations in 1951, as in previous years, gave a practical demonstration of how radio and television can complement each other in the public interest. Because they are typical of the enterprise and originality of WSB, the Peabody Board cites The Pastor’s Study (radio) and Our World Today (television), and for the first time makes a joint award in radio and television on a regional basis to WSB of Atlanta.
