Reveal wins a Peabody

The show I’m creating with the Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX has been honored with a 2014 Peabody Award, the highest award in broadcasting.

We won for a story in our first pilot that showed how the US Veteran Affairs Health Administration is overprescribing opioid painkillers to vets – a 270% increase over the last 10 years. The story led to 2 Congressional hearings and real policy changes at the VA that will save lives.

I’m honored to be among this year’s winners, This American Life, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and PBS Frontline.

Here’s Ira Glass announcing the winners on CBS This Morning.
