CNN Honored with Two Peabody Awards

IMG_0742CNN has been honored with two prestigious Peabody Awards. The judges commended CNN’s Coverage of the Kidnapped Nigerian School Girls and CNN Investigative Reports: Crisis at the VA.

The judges' citations of CNN's reporting:
CNN’s Coverage of Kidnapped Nigerian Schoolgirls
CNN approached the Boko Haram kidnapping horror from many angles, even moving Isha Sesay’s daily show to Abuja to raise the profile of the #BringBackOurGirls campaign. Sesay’s tough, live-TV interviewing, along with high-risk field reporting of Nima Elbagir, Arwa Damon and other CNN journalists, made the network’s coverage comprehensive and indispensable.

CNN Investigative Reports: Crisis at the VA High-impact journalism, CNN’s investigation into delays in care at Veteran Affairs hospitals exposed a systemic VA breakdown, eventually leading to the resignation of VA Secretary Eric Shinseki, the passage of federal legislation, and a dramatic change in how veterans’ medical appointments are made, recorded and reported.
