The new members include veteran newspaper reporters and writers, broadcasters and innovators who shaped news for readers and viewers in Indiana and around the world. They join more than 200 members inducted into the Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame since its founding in 1966. "Once again, an incoming IJHF class reaffirms the Hoosier state's status as a rich constella- tion of accomplished news media professionals," said Stephanie Salter, IJHF board president. "The selection process is never easy, but the end product is always stellar." The board solicits nomina- tions through October, then makes decisions on new induct- ees in November. "With the previously annual induction ceremony paused from May 2019 to April 2022, the IJHF board had several dozen nominations to review," said Larry Taylor IJHF executive director. "At the November meeting, the board selected six outstanding journalists for induction, the largest group since the 20th anniversary celebration in 1985."
