RTDNA Canada Hall of Fame

RTDNA Canada created a Hall of  Fame to recognize people who have made outstanding contributions to the fields of video, digital and audio journalism. Inductees will include the giants of our industry, the leaders who shape the future, the innovators who enhanced news gathering, and the people who maintain the highest standards of our craft.  

Each year, the RTDNA Canada Board will review nominations and select an inductee. The first inductees are the thirteen individuals previously honoured with RTDNA Canada Awards in their name.
