“Disaster Broadcast From Cotton Valley” for Outstanding Public Service by a Local Station
1947 | KXAR Radio
Outstanding Public Service by a Local Station: In 1947, no local station in the country was more alert than Station KXAR of Hope, Arkansas. They merit a Peabody Award for the speed with which they came to the rescue of their own community. Here is the remarkable record of a new station, handicapped by limited facilities, which rose to the crisis when the neighboring country was devastated by a tornado. With a word of thanks to Mutual, who should be proud of this junior, the award for outstanding public service by a local station goes to KXAR of Hope, Arkansas, for its Disaster Broadcast From Cotton Valley.
