The ABC15 Investigators continue to cultivate change in Arizona by reporting on stories that matter to the community.
The Peabody Awards, the oldest awards in broadcasting, are considered among the most prestigious and selective prizes in electronic media.
The Peabodys recognize excellence and meritorious work by radio and television stations, networks, webcasters, producing organizations and individuals.
"We believe our reporting had a real impact nationwide and saved lives," said Anita Helt, vice president and general manager of ABC15. "Taking action to make our community safer and better is our station's mission. This investigation is reflective of the kind of community changing journalism we strive for every day."
The Peabody Awards were formally presented at a luncheon ceremony on May 20 at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York.
