The National Capital Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS-NCCB) announced the 2020 inductees to the prestigious Gold & Silver Circles.

The 2020 honorees join an impressive group of industry professionals who have helped shape the broadcast industry and continue to influence its future and inspire excellence and innovation in every communications discipline.

“This is a tremendous honor that is often compared to a ‘Hall of Fame’ within our Chapter and the entire Academy,” said President Jason Gittlen. “Each inductee will join the ranks of other past inductees, including Sam Donaldson, Gordon Peterson, Judy Woodruff, Ted Koppel, Bob Schieffer and Jim Vance,” he added.

With the induction of the 2020 honorees, the Silver Circle totals 260 and the Gold Circle totals 19.
