The Heart of the Matter
Rare fortitude and sensitivity are reflected in WCCO’s radio program, The Heart of the Matter. Dean E.W. Ziebarth, University of Minnesota, underwent critical open-heart surgery. His personal recounting of the details, accompanied by vivid commentary from the victorious medical team in this life and death struggle, has created a unique radio program in the field of cardiovascular disease and treatment. A Peabody Award for an outstanding approach to acquainting Americans with this ever-growing problem.
