Journalism Hall of Fame
With individual newspapers  serving its many small and medium-sized cities, North Carolina saw the rise of a high-quality and competitive press that, in turn, developed a large community of talented journalists. In 1981 the North Carolina Journalism Hall of Fame  was established to honor these journalists. The Hall of Fame is sponsored by the School of Journalism and Mass Communication  at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill , although honorees need not have a tie to the school. Individuals selected, however, are distinctively identified with North Carolina or have strong ties to the state. Inductions take place during the school's spring "Journalism Days" celebrations. The Hall of Fame's first five inductees were Josephus Daniels  of the Raleigh News and Observer , Charles Kuralt  of CBS News, C. A. "Pete" McKnight  of the Charlotte Observer , Vermont Royster  of the Wall Street Journal, and Tom Wicker  of the New York Times. As of 2004, more than 100 journalists had been inducted, including such luminaries as Harry Golden , Roger Mudd , Jeff MacNelly , Lou Harris , Marjorie Hunter , David Brinkley , and Jonathan Yardley .
