Personal Award: John Crosby
Radio is one of the liveliest of the popular arts, and as such, it deserves more intelligent and unrestrained attention in the press. It if is to be a great art, it must stimulate and challenge great critics. The Peabody Committee congratulates the New York Herald-Tribune for the space accorded John Crosby; it congratulates John Crosby in this special award for the liveliness and pertinence of his radio criticism. More power to his elbow!
