HBO's Real Sports gets 2nd duPont Award

From HBO Sports -


Well 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. 

Columbia 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. 

Real 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.
