GMA News wins Peabody Award for coverage of super typhoon Yolanda

It is the fourth time for GMA Network to win a coveted Peabody Award, the broadcast and electronic media equivalent of the print media's Pulitzer Prizes.

“Facing logistical challenges and sharing in the national shock in the face of what may have been the most powerful typhoon in history, GMA news teams provided desperately needed spot news coverage and information, gaining strength and perspective as they worked, and followed up with solid reporting on the aftermath, heroic acts and relief efforts,” the Peabody Awards board said of GMA News' Yolanda coverage.

The awards are administered by the University of Georgia’s Henry W. Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. text gma news
