“American Masters” & “The Jazz Ambassadors” Win Peabody Awards

Today, two WNET productions were awarded prestigious Peabody Awards.

American Masters — Lorraine Hansberry: Sighted Eyes/Feeling Heart received an award. It is the series’ 14th Peabody.

The Jazz Ambassadors is also the recipient of a 2018 Peabody Award.

As part of the Peabody 30, these programs were considered “the best of the best” out of 1,200 entries in television, radio, podcast, and web programming broadcast in 2018. To receive a nomination and to win a Peabody, a program must receive the unanimous approval of all members of the Peabody Board of Jurors.

Congratulations to both production teams!
