Personal Award: Edward R. Murrow for Outstanding Reporting and Interpretation of the News
 1948 | CBS Radio

The Peabody Award for outstanding reporting and interpretation of the news goes to Edward R. Murrow of CBS. For more than a decade, Ed Murrow has been one of the most reliable and shining lights in the overcast of news analysis. In 1938, he formed his network’s crack European staff. During the five war years, his own broadcasts beginning, This Is London, made radio history with their firm and incisive quality; and to the immense delight of his listeners, after a brief bout of administrative duty, he returned to the air again to tell us the news without fear and prejudice.
