CNN wins Peabody Award for political coverage

(CNN) - CNN has been awarded a Peabody Award for the network's "distinguished achievement and meritorious public service" in its coverage of the 2008 presidential campaign, CNN President Jon Klein announced Wednesday.

The award - which recognizes achievements in radio, television, and cable - was presented to CNN for its "unparalleled coverage of a historic presidential election process," according to the Peabody Board.

The board specifically hailed CNN's "state-of-the-art technology and…small army of reporters, producers and analysts."

The award comes days after CNNPolitics.com was recognized as the best television-affiliated Web reporting of the year by the National Headliner Awards.
