The Monitor Views the News




The Monitor Views the News
Winner 1949 | ABC Radio, Erwin Canham

(Honorable Mention) Like the newspaper which sponsors the broadcast, The Monitor Views the News is a commentary which reflects high standards and emphasis on the significant, as contrasted with the ephemeral and sensational. Erwin Canham, editor of The Christian Science Monitor, and past president of the American Society of Newspaper Editors, brings to the conduct of this broadcast the same perspicacity, interpretative skill, and clarity of presentation which have marked his conduct of the Monitor’s editorial page and his other notable journalistic work. In recognition thereof, this special George Foster Peabody Radio Citation is presented, with a nod to American Broadcasting Company for airing the only news program on which the editor of a major U.S. daily is the chief spokesman.
