WSB Radio and Television

For its Removing the Rust from Radio, a project which reminded both the broadcasting industry and the public that although the luster of radio may have been dimmed by the newness of a competing medium, its quality and potentialities, if properly handled, are as good, or better, than ever; and also in recognition of You and Your Health and other public services during 1953 in the areas of education, religion, and government, the George Foster Peabody Award for outstanding public service by a regional station goes to WSB AM-FM-TV of Atlanta, Georgia.
