2008 PEABODY AWARD WINNERS ANNOUNCED

Upon hearing of The Colbert Report's award, Stephen Colbert, a WGAE member, responded, "I proudly accept this award and begrudgingly forgive the Peabody Committee for taking three years to recognize greatness. On a personal note, I'd like to say that I've long been a fan of Mr. Peabody, as well as his boy Sherman," he said (a reference to the classic segment of Boomer classic Rocky & Bullwinkle ).
