The award listing for the 2010 Peabody Awards are up and we’ve got a local winner right here in town. Congrats are in order for Ms. Diane Rehm of WAMU-FM who snagged the award for herself due to her work on The Diane Rehm Show.

Rehm is a D.C. native and has been in radio broadcasting since 1973 when she started as a volunteer for WAMU’s The Home Show.

The Peabody Awards have praised broadcasters, cable and Webcasters, production organizations, and individuals since 1941for their achievements.

Other notable winners of this year’s Peabody’s include ABC’s Modern Family, Sesamestreet.org, FOX’s Glee, and NPR.org. For a complete list of winners, visit the Peabody Award website.
