  • Eric is inducted into the Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame

    April 27, 2024  11:00 am - 3:00 pm Woodland Country Club, 100 Woodland Ln, Carmel, IN 46032, USA

    The IJHF was founded in 1966 at DePauw University by the Indiana Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. The IJHF annually inducts active, working journalists as well as those with past careers. As the organization's mission statement reads, inductees are "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," and that "their contributions to journalism have had a significant impact on the political, social, economic or cultural life of their communities.”
