About the George Foster Peabody Awards

The George Foster Peabody Awards honor the best of American television, radio, and online media, and are considered the highest honor in the American broadcast industry. In response to the rise in popularity of radio in the late 1930s, in 1941 The National Association of Broadcasters formed a committee to establish a prestigious award similar to the Pulitzer Prize for excellence in radio programming. Initially the awards were limited to radio media, but from 1948 onwards television was included, and in the late 1990s online media was also included. Currently, there are a variety of categories including Entertainment, Documentary, News, Podcast & Radio, Children’s & Youth, Art, Public Service, and Multimedia Programming.
