C-SPAN Video Library Accepts Peabody Award

May 25, 2011

At a ceremony in New York on Monday, May 23, 2011, the C-SPAN Video Library accepted a 2011 George Foster Peabody award for excellence in communication. The awards were announced earlier this spring. The award recognizes twenty-four years of building the Video Library through the recording, indexing, and abstracting of every program airing on C-SPAN since 1987. The Archives has digitized 170,000 hours of C-SPAN programming including 120,000 hours that were originally on analog videotape. The staff of the C-SPAN Archives is honored to receive this award and to have our work making American democracy more accessible recognized by the Peabody Committee and the University of Georgia where the Peabody archives are located.
