Personal Award: Pamela Ilott for “Lamp Under My Feet” and “Look Up and Live”





Winner 1973

A special, personal Peabody Award to Pamela Ilott of CBS News for her outstanding contributions to broadcasting. The position of Director of Religious and Cultural Broadcasting requires an abundance of talents, including diplomacy, inspiration, and the ability to cajole some of the world’s busiest people into working for the soul instead of the pocketbook. This is a difficult trick when the cost of living is being uplifted with greater regularity than the spirit. Pamela Ilott’s talents along these lines have provided the CBS network with programs of substance and imagination for many years on such regular shows as Look Up and Live and Lamp Unto My Feet as well as innumerable specials. For her, a Peabody Award.
