Peabody Awards to Iraq-Injured Journos

Among today’s thirty-five Peabody Award winners are two journalists wounded on assignment in Iraq.

Here’s the AP:

Peabodys went to “Wounds of War — The Long Road Home for Our Nation’s Veterans,” a series of reports by ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff, and to “CBS News Sunday Morning: The Way Home” for Kimberly Dozier’s piece about two women veterans who lost limbs in Iraq.

Dozier and Woodruff survived near-fatal attacks while on assignment in Iraq.

The awards, which are administered by the University of Georgia, will be handed out in New York City on June 16, in a ceremony hosted by NBC’s Brian Williams.
