 1956 | ABC Radio

Edward P. Morgan and the News was the outstanding radio program for 1956. Mr. Morgan’s daily 15-minute program of hard news and commentary has developed a wide public acceptance because of the skill and brilliance of its presentation. Notable is the circumstance that the A.F.L.-C.I.O., as his sponsors, bring this public service to the radio audience without any suggestion of special pleading or propaganda. Mr. Morgan, as an experienced reporter, gives the news and his independent interpretations in accordance with the highest traditions of radio journalism. In recognition of all this, the George Foster Peabody Radio News Award for 1956.
