What selection criteria will you utilize to determine who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame?
Inductees into the Tennessee Journalism Hall of Fame (TJHOF) will be individuals who have made significant and substantial contributions to the profession during a career that includes the practice of journalism in print, broadcast, and new media.
Honorees may be living or deceased, native Tennesseans who spent much of their career out of state or non-natives who spent a substantial portion of their career in Tennessee. To be considered for induction, individuals must have distinguished themselves through news or business management, leadership in the industry, or in the ordinary practice of journalism, and those whose contributions have otherwise been recognized by their peers.
Inductees would come from various ranks to include, reporters, writers, editors, publishers, news directors and other managers and those who have excelled in the advertising, public relations, and education in those disciplines.
Nominations for 2017 should be submitted by Jun. 1, 2017.
