When WTSP-TV learned that migrant farm workers were being kidnapped, abused, and enslaved by a farm labor contractor, they assigned a first-rate reporting team to the task of uncovering the story. Despite great personal risks which had to be taken to uncover the forced labor operations, the team brought to the people of their viewing area revelations of a serious problem that may otherwise have gone unnoticed. For this courageous investigative reporting, a Peabody Award to WTSP-TV.
