Institutional Award: WDSU-TV for Local Public Service





 1959 | WDSU-TV

Local Television Public Service: The editorial service of WDSU-TV, New Orleans, is distinguished for the wide scope and diversifications of its subject matter; for the frequent and courageous treatment of controversial material; and, for the intelligent, impartial, and professional quality of its presentation. This is clearly local television public service on a high level and as such merits a Peabody Award in this category.
