NPR Wins Peabody Awards

NPR has won several Peabody Awards for an investigation into inequalities in the South Dakota foster care system for Native Americans, coverage of the Arab Spring, and remembrances of 9/11 collected by StoryCorps and broadcast on Morning Edition. The news was announced today.

Receiving Peabody Awards are the NPR News Investigation “Native Foster Care: Lost Children, Shattered Families,” reported by correspondent Laura Sullivan and producer Amy Walters; and NPR’s foreign desk, namely Jerusalem Correspondent Lourdes Garcia-Navarro, for coverage of the Arab Spring in 2011. The oral history project StoryCorps’ response to the 10th anniversary of 9/11 also received an award; interviews with survivors and victims’ relatives were broadcast in a series on NPR’s Morning Edition.

“This is an enormous honor,” said Margaret Low Smith, Senior Vice President of NPR News, in a release.
