Special Award to Broadcasting Industry of the U.S.A. for Coverage of the Assassination of President Kennedy and Related Events

Broadcasting Industry of the U.S.A.

For four dreadful days last November, America and the world were stunned by the shock of the assassination of our President. At this time of critical, national transition, broadcasters throughout this land quickly rose to fulfill their noble responsibility of public service. For giving all Americans and our friends abroad continuous, mature, sensitive, and non-commercial coverage of this tragic period of American history, the broadcasting industry, the men and women of radio and television, and particularly the networks, merit a special Peabody Award for dedicated and enduring service to the public interest.
