Institutional Award: CBS Television for Television Public Service with Special Recognition Given to Dr. Frank Stanton





 1958 | CBS Television, Dr. Frank Stanton

Television Public Service: In presenting this Peabody Award to CBS-TV, special recognition goes to President Frank Stanton. Credit also goes to Producers Les Midgley and Av Westin for CBS News special-in-depth reports such as The Ruble War, the pioneering Where We Stand, Parts I and II, Arab Ride-Prologue To The Summit, Face Of Red China and a series on the Middle East, with commendation to Don Hewitt. Several of these comprehensive reports treating the news in depth were issued when the news was still white hot, and they were a significant contribution to public understanding of very important issues.
