WISH, WTHR receive Peabody awards

April 5, 2007

WISH-TV Channel 8, IBJ ’s newsgathering partner, has won a Peabody award for an investigative series showing how a $30 helmet pad could save soldiers’ lives in a blast.

WTHR-TV Channel 13 received a Peabody for exposing problems with the state’s tornado warning system, and a second for showing how area pharmacies discarded patient subscription records into open dumpsters.

The awards, announced yesterday by the University of Georgia, are among the most prestigious in television journalism.
