LEXINGTON - Four journalists and a Louisville media attorney were inducted into the Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame during a ceremony Tuesday at the University of Kentucky.
The journalism hall's new members are Glen Bastin, Maria Braden, John Egerton, Jon Fleischaker and Eliza Piggott Underwood. The quintet joins 130 other journalists who have been inducted into the hall since its creation in 1981.
Bastin is a three-decade veteran of Kentucky broadcasting and a former news director at WHAS in Louisville. He has worked at stations in Somerset, Bowling Green, Glasgow and Morehead.
Braden is a former UK journalism professor, Associated Press reporter, freelance writer and editor. She retired from UK in December 2001.
Egerton is a career freelance reporter and writer who was among a small group of journalists in the early 1960s who started focusing attention on the civil rights struggle.
Fleischaker, a media attorney, has worked for three decades in litigation and the creation of legislation to protect the press in Kentucky. He has litigated most major media cases in the state.
Underwood became the first female editor of a Kentucky newspaper when she was named to that position with the Lexington Herald in 1919. She also was UK's first female journalism graduate.
