Institutional Award: 60 Minutes (CBS)




Institutional Award: 60 Minutes
 2017 | CBS News 60 Minutes

Institutional Award goes to “60 Minutes,” one of the nation’s most enduring media institutions now celebrating 50 years on the air. Since its debut, the CBS News “magazine for television” has become nothing less than a touchstone in American life, regularly pursuing investigations that lead to legal action, catalyze social change, and illuminate dark government secrets. A previous recipient of more than 20 Peabody Awards, “60 Minutes” consistently delivers hard-hitting, exclusive, thoroughly reported stories that help the American citizenry better understand phenomena as varied as Watergate, Abu Ghraib, symphonic orchestras in the Congo, and cocaine smuggling by the CIA. The journalistic powerhouse has been the source of personalities who have become household names, including original co-hosts Harry Reasoner and Mike Wallace, Ed Bradley, Morley Safer, Andy Rooney, Bob Simon, Lesley Stahl, Lara Logan, Steve Kroft, Christiane Amanpour, Anderson Cooper, and Bill Whitaker.
