30 programs from the broadcast and digital space have been deemed the “most compelling and empowering” for the year 2019 by the 79th Peabody Awards Board of Jurors.

According to Indiewire, the Peabody Awards are notable for being a juried award chosen from more than 1,300 submissions. The jury members are made up of an eclectic mix of industry professionals, media scholars, critics, and journalists and for a program to win the prestigious distinction, the choice made by the jury must be unanimous.

“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,” Jeffrey P. Jones, executive director of Peabody, said in a statement. “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.”

Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, the Peabody awards will not be hosting a traditional ceremony.
