William L. Shirer and CBS Radio for Outstanding Reporting and Interpretation of the News
1946 | CBS Radio
One of that great team of news gatherers enlisted by Paul White for CBS, William L. Shirer won the gratitude of American listeners for the truth he told us about Hitler and Germany despite the opposition of censors during those crucial years, 1938-41. We are equally grateful to him as a commentator for his recent warning of the trouble arising in Central Europe. To Mr. Shirer—and may his voice be heard again!—the Peabody Award for the outstanding interpretation of the news in 1946.
