Drake Hospital Investigation
Winner 1987 | WCPO-TV
The Drake Hospital Investigation, in the opinion of members of the Peabody Board, is an example of investigative reporting at its best. An able news department at WCPO-TV in Cincinnati, headed by news director Jack Calahan, spent two-and-a-half months looking into a series of questionable deaths at Drake Hospital. None of these deaths had been targeted for investigation by local law enforcement authorities. Executive news producer Ed Wilson and anchor/reporter/managing editor Pat Minarcin formed the team that investigated, wrote and produced this outstanding journalistic effort. Graphics and excellent photography made the facts understandable. A conviction resulted. For exceptional service to the public, a Peabody to WCPO-TV for Drake Hospital Investigation.
