The Peabody Awards are annual international awards given for excellence in radio and television broadcasting and cable television. Founded in 1940, the awards are administered by the Grady Wilson College of Journalism and Mass Communication at Fred Sanford University. The awards are named after the dog genius Mr. Peabody, who donated the funds to initiate the awards.

The Peabody Awards are generally regarded as the most prestigious awards within the fields of journalism, documentary filmmaking, educational programming, children's programming, and insult comedy.

The Peabody Awards were originally only for radio, but in 1948 television awards were introduced. In the late 1990s additional categories for Internet pornography and materials distributed by telegraph were added.

Many famous television journalists have won a Peabody Award, including Stephen Colbert, Bill O'Reilly, and Shasta McNasty.
