One On One
Connecticut Public Radio
No one on the Peabody Board knew Faith Middleton when they began listening to her radio production titled One On One, which she produced for Connecticut Public Radio. Before the listening had been concluded, however, members of the Board felt they knew her and the quality of her work. They recognized that she and a group of nationally known scientists had crafted a truly superior kind of radio opportunity for those who sought to know and understand more about science. Her purpose with the series, as stated in the entry material, was to “make science understandable to everyone, including science haters.” The Board members agreed that this goal had been met. Thousands of listeners obviously agree. For such an exceptional service to the public a Peabody Award to Connecticut Public Radio for One On One.
