Texas Tech University

Hall of Fame

The Media & Communication Hall of Fame was organized to recognize Texas Tech University alumni who have distinguished themselves in media and communication. The Hall of Fame also recognizes individuals who have distinguished themselves in media and communication and have specifically aided the educational programs in the College of Media & Communication at Texas Tech.

Nominations are made by any student, faculty member, individual or group. The nominations must be made prior to the fall meeting of the Media & Communication National Professional Advisory Board for consideration for inclusion in the annual ceremony.

Election to the Media & Communication Hall of Fame requires a three-fourths vote by the members present at official meetings of the Media & Communication faculty and the Media & Communication National Professional Advisory Board.

Qualifications for election or selection into the Hall of Fame include an alumni who have been out of school for at least five years or a person who is not an alumni, who is not, at the time of the award, serving in any official capacity with Texas Tech University.
