Two journalists seriously injured in Iraq won Peabody Awards today for their stories on wounded veterans, the AP reports. Bob Woodruff of ABC and Kimberly Dozier of CBS each won for their profiles of soldiers returning home from Iraq. Woodruff suffered a brain injury in an IED attack in 2006, and Dozier sustained leg injuries in a car bomb attack the same year.
CBS’ coverage of Iraq earned it another Peabody for Scott Pelley’s series "Killings in Haditha." In other genres, Discovery took home an award for the HDTV nature show Planet Earth, while 30 Rock (NBC), Mad Men (AMC), the Colbert Report (Comedy Central), and Dexter (Showtime) won in entertainment categories.
