Peabody Awards to WTHR, WISH

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.

WISH-TV Channel 8 has won a Peabody award for an investigative series showing how a $30 helmet pad could save soldiers' lives in a blast.

They're among 35 recipients of the 66th Annual Peabody Awards, announced Wednesday (4 April) by the University of Georgia`s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. The winners, chosen by the Peabody board as the best in electronic media for 2006, were named in a ceremony in the Peabody Gallery on the University of Georgia Campus.
