The Rauch Brothers, Tim and Mike, have won the prestigeous 71st Annual George Foster Peabody Award for their StoryCorps animated shorts commemorating the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. They share the honor with StoryCorps, POV, the 9/11 Memorial and Musuem, NPR’s Morning Edition, and YouTube. My congratulations The Rauch Brothers and the teams who worked on StoryCorps’ 9/11 radio broadcasts and mobile app, which was also named as part of the award. The StoryCorps 9/11 animated short series was also recently announced as an Official Honoree of the 16th Annual Webby Awards for Documentary Series.
