Personal Award: Elmer Davis for Outstanding Reporting and Interpretation of the News




Personal Award: Elmer Davis for Outstanding Reporting and Interpretation of the News
Winner 1947 | ABC Radio

In September 1939, a clear mind speaking with the twang of Indiana helped us to think straight about the war. The Peabody Committee gave Elmer Davis its first award for his reporting of the news and we are happy to honor him again this year. Elmer Davis has learned to live in our national capital without losing his sanity, his sense of humor, and his knowledge of right from wrong. In a day of hysterical utterance, his resolute reasoning points steadily toward the possible peace. We are proud to give him this second medal for his reporting and interpretation of the news.
