Coverage of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks dominated the list of winners of the 61st annual Peabody Awards announced last week. ABC News’ coverage on Sept. 11 and 12 and more than 180 hours of programming by National Public Radio earned Peabodys for those organizations. The awards will be presented on May 20 at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York in a ceremony hosted by Walter Cronkite.
