KTVU wins a Peabody for BART shooting coverage
KTVU has landed a Peabody award for its coverage of the New Year's Day 2009 shooting of Oscar Grant by BART police officer Johannes Mehserle.

The Peabody, awarded by the University of Georgia's Grady School of Journalism and Mass Communications, honors broadcasters for on-air and online excellence. The awards will be presented at a luncheon at New York's Waldorf-Astoria in New York on May 17.
