Victorian Media Hall of Fame
The Melbourne Press Club announced 2013 Hall of Fame inductees at a dinner in the Victorian State Library in October.This year’s induction covers people who had started to make their mark on the Victorian media by 1970. It will include the first living Hall-of-Famers. Inductees need to have made an outstanding contribution to their craft and enhanced the history of the media in Victoria.The first induction of 20 journalists announced last November covered the 100 years from the publication of Melbourne’s first newspaper in 1838. This year’s list will include more from that period as well as people who worked in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s when radio and television joined newspapers as prime sources of news and current affairs.Next year’s induction will cover contemporary journalism. After next year, the Melbourne Press Club may make occasional or regular additions to the Hall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame recognises people who have made significant contributions to the craft of journalism and enhanced the history of the news media in Victoria. Nominees must have a strong connection to Victoria.
