From HBO Sports -
before "concussed" became a top-of-mind subject on the national sports
landscape, HBO's Real Sports was presenting enterprising reporting that
included the 2007 Emmy-Award-winning
story on the impact of concussions in the NFL by Bernard Goldberg.
University announced today that Real Sports -- the only sports
televison show ever honored with a duPont --will receive its second
duPont-Columbia University Broadcast
Journalism Award for Goldberg's continued reporting on the impact of
concussions in sports.
Sports' first duPont Award came in 2004 for the shocking story by
the program's investigative team on young boys being forced to work as
camel jockeys in the UAE.
