From 18th Street: Destination Peking
1973 | WIND Radio
To WIND, Chicago, a George Foster Peabody Award for a most significant contribution to international understanding through radio. From 18th Street: Destination Peking tells the story of 20 Chicagoans who visited mainland China. Produced by a 19-year old college student and WIND trainee, Serafin Trejo, the program gave WIND listeners-and listeners to many other Group W stations across the nation an opportunity to view China, uncolored by sophisticated bias. Trejo’s companions on the trip, themselves also from the poorest of Chicago neighborhoods, gave the program a fresh approach, unfortunately not often seen in today’s radio. For this outstanding effort, a Peabody Award to WIND, Chicago.
