Excellence in Journalism – North Texas Legends Award Recipients

Each year, the Press Club of Dallas honors journalists who have had distinguished careers in North Texas. These esteemed individuals are chosen to receive the prestigious award by a peer panel comprised of past “Legend” award winners. All Press Club members are asked to make nominations. Nominees can be retired or still working in the field of journalism. The awards are held in May of each year at the Sixth Floor Museum.
