Inductees are recognized for their leadership in the newspaper industry in Alabama, their strong community service, and their leadership in the Alabama Press Association. An inductee must have been deceased for more than five years.

The Alabama Newspaper Hall of Honor was established in 1959 to honor the memory of Alabama’s most outstanding editors and publishers and to preserve the history of the state’s newspapers.

The Hall of Honor is housed in the Ralph Brown Draughon Library on the campus of Auburn University where the ceremony is held each year.
