Since its inception in 1981, some 135 persons have been inducted into the Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame. Plaques honoring the members are on exhibit in the Enoch Grehan Journalism Building on the UK campus.

A nomination form is available on the UK School of Journalism and Telecommunications Web site. To make a nomination, complete the form and send the requested information to Julie Berry, assistant to the director, School of Journalism and Telecommunications, University of Kentucky, 107 Grehan Building, Lexington, KY 40506-0042.
