ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — The ABC drama "Scandal," Netflix's "House of Cards" and pair of news programs about concussions in the National Football League are among a record 46 recipients of Peabody Awards.

The winners were chosen by the board of the George Foster Peabody Awards at the University of Georgia as the "best in electronic media for 2013." They were announced Wednesday by Peabody Award-winning journalists Ira Glass and Charlayne Hunter-Gault on "CBS This Morning."

The PBS show "Frontline" won for "League of Denial: The NFL's Concussion Crisis" and ESPN's "Outside the Lines" won for its piece, "NFL at a Crossroads: Investigating a Health Crisis."

The Peabody awards will be formally presented May 19 at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.
