“America’s Town Meeting of the Air” for Outstanding Educational Program




“America’s Town Meeting of the Air” for Outstanding Educational Program
 1945 | ABC Radio, Dr. George V. Denny, Jr.

The edification, the fearlessness and the fair, firm moderation which have characterized George V. Denny’s selection and conduct of America’s Town Meeting of the Air were never more urgently needed by conscientious listeners. To Mr. Denny, to his capable staff, and to the American Broadcasting Company, we take pleasure in presenting the Peabody Award for the outstanding educational program of 1945. Mr. Denny has the distinction of being the first double winner: Town Meeting received the medal in 1943 and is still the irresistible leader in its field. This program has served as a stalwart example for 26 Junior Town Meetings which are perpetuating the principles of free debate among the citizens of tomorrow.
