Description
Series Description
"The State of the Union project was a television-newspaper-radio project focusing on the current state of American government, family, work and identity. The series included four prime time broadcasts, each accompanied by a major report in USA TODAY and a companion broadcast on National Public Radio's 'Talk of the Nation'. Each broadcast and newspaper report were tied to topic related dates in the calendar (i.e. a special on work airing on Labor Day). The four specials were: Inaugural Special: Jan 20 Mother's Day Special: May 9th That's Why They Call It Work (Labor Day): September 1st Looking for America (Columbus Day): October 13 "We also commissioned a major new poll of American attitudes to coincide with each broadcast. The polls explored current attitudes on each topic and were reported by over a hundred newspapers and broadcast outlets around the country. Segments from our programs were also utilized by the News Hour with Jim Lehrer on three occasions. This cross media strategy provided increased impact for the overall project. "Enclosed are samples of the programs, newspaper reports, survey results and two other publications on work and family issues we made available to viewers."--1997 Peabody Awards entry form.
