The Peabody Awards Board of Jurors have selected 60 nominees that represent the most compelling and empowering stories released in electronic media during 2017. The nominees were selected from approximately 1,200 entries from television, radio/podcasts and the web. The Peabody Awards are based at the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia.
“True to tradition, we are proud to present a rich mix of excellence in the craft of storytelling,” said Jeffrey P. Jones, executive director of Peabody. “These stories reflect important social issues and exemplify the power of diverse voices and platforms in media today.”
