PBS Wins The Most Peabody Awards for 2019, Apple TV+ Gets its First





Despite the 2020 ceremony being canceled, the annual Peabody Awards have been divvied out and this year PBS came out on top as frontrunner taking home 7 out of the 30 awards. Netflix and HBO both won 4, including awards for Stranger Things and Chernobyl respectively.

Apple TV+ and won it’s first Peabody award for the comedy Dickenson, as did OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network for its coming of age drama David Makes a Man. Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Lifetime all brought home one award each.

The Simpsons won an Institutional Award, as did PBS’s long-running investigative program Frontline.

“This year’s winners are a vibrant collective of inspiring, innovative, and powerful stories. True to the spirit and legacy of Peabody, our winners are also distinguished by the presence and resilience of many emerging and diverse voices,” said Jeffrey P. Jones, executive director of Peabody. “We are especially proud to celebrate ‘FRONTLINE’ as an unwavering source for truth through quality journalism when both are actively under attack, and ‘The Simpsons,’ one of the most consistently funny and culturally important satirical sitcoms over the last three decades.”

The Peabody Awards are given 30 of nearly 1300 entries submitted from television, radio/podcasts, and the web across the genres of entertainment, news, documentary, children’s and public service programming.
