The Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame was created by the University of Kentucky Journalism Alumni Association in 1980 and inducts new members annually. It recognizes Kentuckians who have made significant contributions to the profession of journalism. Nominees must be natives of Kentucky or journalists who have spent a significant portion of their careers in Kentucky.
The Hall of Fame is housed in the School of Journalism and Media at the University of Kentucky.
The Hall of Fame has inducted Pulitzer Prize winners, reporters, editors, photographers, publishers, broadcasters, journalism teachers and others who have left their mark on journalism. Scan the honor roll of more than 200 names and you’ll find the first African-American woman to cover the White House, the developer of gonzo journalism, a voice of Triple Crown races and winners of nearly every national journalism award.
