Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame moves to Bloomington

Categories: Indiana University

The Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame is moving to Indiana University’s School of Journalism in Bloomington July 1.

"The Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame board is excited about the hall being housed at one of the truly outstanding journalism schools in the nation," president Ray Moscowitz said. "With its great journalism heritage, IU is an ideal place for the hall to relocate.

The Hall of Fame was formed “to recognize and honor those individuals who have demonstrated over a number of years that they are journalists of the highest distinction; that their dedication and contribution to journalism have in turn contributed to the regard others have for journalism; that their contributions to journalism have had a significant impact on the political, social, economic or cultural life of their communities.”

The School of Journalism is located in Ernie Pyle Hall, which is named for the Pulitzer Prize-winning World War II correspondent and inaugural member of the Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame, who had been an IU student in the 1920s.
