Podcasting and (public) radio in the Peabody nominations

“Radio/Podcasts” is a category in the recently released Peabody Award nominations. In it, 11 programs are cited:

  • Bag Man MSNBC (MSNBC)
  • Believed Michigan Radio (NPR)
  • Buried Truths WABE (WABE)
  • Caliphate The New York Times (The New York Times)
  • Ear Hustle PRX’s Radiotopia (PRX’s Radiotopia)
  • In The Dark (season 2) APM Reports (Podcast)
  • Kept Out Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting, PRX, PBS Newshour, and the Associated Press (Public radio stations nationwide)
  • Monumental Lies Type Investigations and Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX (Public radio stations nationwide)
  • My World Was Burning: The North Bay Fires and What Went Wrong KQED and Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX (Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX)
  • This American Life Episode #657: The Runaways This American Life and ProPublica Inc. (Public Radio Stations, podcast)
  • The Daily The New York Times (The New York Times)

Worth noting that eight of these 11 nominations come from public radio, and the remaining three come from media organizations not natively audio (MSNBC and The New York Times twice). Both those media categories have assertively jumped into podcasting with greater top-level influence than commercial radio in the U.S.
