Essays by Roger Rosenblatt





 1984 | MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour, WNET/Thirteen, New York, New York, WETA/26, Washington, DC, Gannett Productions

Significant contributions to American television by The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour have previously been honored by the Peabody Board. One program element is now being singled out for such recognition. The essays by Roger Rosenblatt are characterized by depth, by accuracy, by interest, by writing at the highest levels of the art, and, especially by the superb mating of Mr. Rosenblatt’s prose with the visual, moving images sought out by producer Michael Saltz and his staff. Just as his writing for TIME has brought him accolades, Mr. Rosenblatt’s television efforts now do likewise. To all who had a part—WNET/Thirteen, New York; WETA/26, Washington; MacNeil-Lehrer—Gannett Productions; executive producer Les Crystal; and, especially, Roger Rosenblatt, a well-deserved tribute from the Peabody Board, as evidenced by this award.
