KHOU 11 in Houston wins Peabody Award

Unfreaking believable! After just winning the prestigious IRE Medal award, KHOU 11 News Defenders picked up a 69th annual Peabody Award! This is really big:

Under Fire: Discrimination and Corruption in the Texas National Guard (KHOU-TV)
KHOU-TV, Houston, Tex., Belo, Inc.
Dogged work by the Houston station’s investigative reporters found such blatant discriminatory treatment of female soldiers that three top Texas Guard generals were fired and a new commanding officer was appointed. SEE FULL LIST OF WINNERS

Congrats again to KHOU's Mark Greenblatt, David Raziq, Keith Tomshe, Chris Henao, Robyn Hughes, Keith Connors. Job well done.

I want to walk through the KHOU 11 studios now. I want to drink from their water fountains. Touch their desks. Eat from the station snack machine. Maybe some of it will rub off on me.

  1. It seems that Houston TV stations spend far too much time trying to win awards!

  2. I guess at KHOU it is money well spent.
