Personal Award: Jack Benny
1949 | CBS Radio
The George Foster Peabody Radio Award in entertainment goes to The Jack Benny Show and in particular to Jack Benny himself, for developing so brilliantly a comedy program which has avoided habit, staleness and artificiality. The Peabody Committee wishes to congratulate Jack Benny’s writing team for their originality and vitality; they applaud Mr. Benny himself for the masterly timing and delivery of his own lines, for his good sense in subordinating his role in the interest of many a comic situation, and most of all because he makes laughter sound so easy and natural.
