Read more about the Hall of Fame

The Deadline Club, which is the New York City chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, established the New York Journalism Hall of Fame in 1975 as part of its golden anniversary celebration. See the original event program here. 

From the beginning, the Hall of Fame was conceived as a lifetime achievement award recognizing reporters, writers, correspondents, editors, publishers and media executives whose work had made a significant contribution to American journalism.

The Deadline Club has been recognizing and honoring the best in high school journalism teaching and advising with The Robert Greenman Award for Excellence in High School Journalism and Advising since 2006.
