“Lux Radio Theatre” and “An Open Letter to the American People” for Outstanding Entertainment in Drama
 1943 | CBS Radio

Outstanding Entertainment in Drama: For outstanding entertainment in drama, the Board voted a double award to Lux Radio Theatre and An Open Letter to the American People—both CBS presentations. The first, produced by Cecil B. DeMille, received more listening-post votes than any other program in this category. The second, written and produced by William N. Robson (a 1942 Peabody winner for his production, The Man Behind the Gun), argued with dramatic simplicity and force for futility of violence as a solution of racial problems.
