April 10, 2019

The finalists for the 78th Annual Peabody Awards were announced yesterday and we are psyched because of the 60 finalists, our programs received 16 nominations! Established by a committee of the National Association of Broadcasters in 1940, this awards program was created to recognize the most compelling and empowering stories in radio broadcasting and it is the oldest major electronic media award in the United States. Today the awards have expanded to honor quality storytelling in television, radio, and digital media. The 30 winning programs are selected by the Peabody Awards board of jurors and will be announced over the coming weeks: April 16 (Documentary), April 18 (Entertainment/Children’s & Youth) and April 23 (News/Radio/Web/Public Service programming).

On May 18, 2019, Ronan Farrow will host the Peabody Awards ceremony at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City where winners and nominees will be recognized.

Below is the complete list of PBS finalists.
