The Silver Circle Award was established to recognize and honor outstanding individuals who have devoted 25 years or more to the television industry and who have either made significant contributions to local broadcasting, or who have spent the formative years of their career in chapter region. Nominees in academic, administrative, creative, journalistic, performing, or technical roles within the television industry are eligible.
For the first time in its 30-year history, the Silver Circle Honors presentation scheduled for 2020 had to be postponed because of the covid pandemic.
