Tanya Hart, host of AURN’s nationally syndicated “Hollywood Live with Tanya Hart,” was inducted into the National Association of Black Journalists 2020 Hall Of Fame Friday in Las Vegas. Hart’s induction was part of NABJ’s 2022 induction ceremony for their Hall of Fame Special Honors Awards.
“I am so grateful to Board President, Dorothy Tucker, and the other members who nominated me for this prestigious award,” Hart said in a news release. “I am humbled, excited and inspired, and most importantly with God’s grace I will continue to tell my listener the truth, which is, of course, the backbone of good journalism.”
In addition to Hart, the NABJ also honored other distinguished Black journalists for their contributions to the industry, including Michelle V. Agins, photographer, The New York Times; Harry D. Boomer, Anchor/Senior Reporter, Cleveland 19 News; Levi Henry, Jr., Founder/Publisher, Westside Gazette Newspaper; and Cheryl Smith, Publisher-Editor, I Messenger Media. A posthumous award was also bestowed upon Charles W. “Hoppy” Adams, Jr., Executive VP of WANN-TV Atlanta and WXTC-FM Greenville, PA.
