Sleeping Watchdogs

KMOX Radio

A Peabody Award to KMOX Radio in St. Louis for the excellence of their investigative reporting. Their courageous, brilliant and well-balanced series, Sleeping Watchdogs, is a top-notch piece of investigation, interpretation and analysis. The KMOX series showed that the consumer is still often at the mercy of those governmental boards established to protect his interests, and that some agencies appear to be more interested in protecting the public at large. For this outstanding example of meritorious service, a Peabody Award to KMOX Radio, St. Louis, for a series which transcends the usual and the ordinary.
