Our good friends at PRX have had quite a week! On Monday, May 19th, at a ceremony in New York, PRX and collaborators at the Center for Investigative Reporting picked up a prestigious Peabody Award for their work on “Reveal,” a new investigative public radio program “accompanied by web, mobile and social platforms that create a powerful level of content and audience engagement.” The winning story from Reveal’s pilot episode, reported by CIR’s Aaron Glantz, exposed opiate prescription abuse by the VA and the damage done to veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. That same night, PRX was awarded a Webby for its phenomenal Public Radio Player app, which won in the “Media Streaming Service” category. PRX’s Jake Shapiro delivered PRX’s version of the famous Webby Awards’ five word acceptance speech. Congratulations to the whole PRX team!
