Personal Award: Eric Sevareid for Reporting and Interpretation of the News
 1949 | CBS Radio

As chief Washington correspondent for the Columbia Broadcasting System, Eric Sevareid brings to the reporting of significant news a background of experience and understanding—domestic and foreign. Wherever big world news is breaking, he has either already been or is on the scene getting a first-hand report for his Monday-through Friday broadcast. His seat of operations is Washington, but for national political conventions, government conferences, and U.N. meetings, he goes where the news originates. And in his reporting, he reveals a depth and clarity, a perspicacity and lucidity, which clearly entitle him to this George Foster Peabody Award for outstanding reporting in 1949.
