Both Beyoncé and Donald Glover have earned what was once considered the “Pulitzer Prize for radio.”

Bey’s acclaimed HBO special Lemonade and Donald’s award-winning series on FX Atlanta are, respectively, among the projects honored as members of the inaugural Peabody 30, which celebrates “programming in news, radio/podcast, web and public service.”

Shows like Netflix’ Luke Cage and NBC’s This Is Us were finalists, but ultimately did not win.

The two will be formally honored May 20th, as actress Rashida Jones will host the 76th annual Peabody Awards New York City. The ceremony will air on June 2nd on PBS and Fusion.
