The National Academy of Television Journalists was founded in 1985 by a group of news executives for the the sole purpose of working with newly graduated J-school students, to assist them as they entered the world of T.V. news. This was done for many years, mainly on a one-on-one basis, to help place these new students. Today many of them are successful anchors, reporters, producers, photographers, etc., making a proud name for themselves in the industry. We decided to take it one step further, by honoring those in our industry for excellence in their fields of endeaver.
