Individual 1980

Personal Award: Sol Taishoff

A personal Peabody Award to Sol Taishoff, a true broadcasting pioneer. His 50 years of reporting and interpreting current events in radio and television, (and more recently in cable), have earned for him the respect and admiration of the industry he serves with such distinction. At times he has criticized radio and television; at times he has praised radio and television. In so doing he has often found disagreement, even among his friends within the industry. He has never sought merely to express popular views. Above all, his inherent fairness and integrity have never been subject to question. A well deserved Peabody to Sol Taishoff.
