Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame
The Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame
The Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame was established in 1980 by the University of Kentucky Journalism Alumni Association. The first recipients were inducted on April 13, 1981. New members are inducted each year. The purpose is to recognize Kentuckians who have made significant contributions to the profession of journalism. Selection is made from individuals, living or dead, who are natives of Kentucky, or who have spent a significant portion of their careers in Kentucky. The material that appears here is the copy from the Hall of Fame members' induction plaques. In some cases, Hall of Fame members or their families have provided updated biographical information and/or links to related web sites. The Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame is administered by and housed at the University of Kentucky's School of Journalism and Telecommunications.
The deadline for nominations for the Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame is in early January each year; the nomination form (PDF File) is available below as an attachment.
