Summary: "CBS News broadcast 'AFGHANISTAN: The Road Ahead', a three part, in-depth examination of the war in Afghanistan. In order to allow greatly expanded coverage, for the first time, 'CBS EVENING NEWS WITH KATIE COURIC' significantly reformatted, with the each evening's entire broadcast dedicated to the subject.

"October 7, 2009 marked the eighth anniversary of US forces fighting the war in Afghanistan and yet the mission and the goals of that conflict increasingly are being debated all across the spectrum. In this series, CBS News devoted multiple resources, including three successive and uniquely programmed CBS Evening News broadcasts, which provided our audience with a clearer understanding of the challenges we face in Afghanistan and the consequences of the options that confront America

"Katie Couric led the expanded coverage with reporting and analysis from Afghanistan by CBS News' Chief Foreign Correspondent Lara Logan, National Security Correspondent David Martin and Foreign Correspondent Terry McCarthy and others.

"We think this was a very important effort which helped the viewer gain a larger understanding of the war being fought in Afghanistan."--2009 Peabody Awards entry form.
