The MCG Media Hall of Fame recognises outstanding service by sports journalists and photographers in their coverage of cricket and football at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Located inside the Ron Casey Media Centre on Level 3 of the Olympic Stand, the Hall of Fame expands the pictorial and biographical presentation of eminent sportswriters, broadcasters, and photographers who have been featured in the Media Centre's Rogues Gallery, which was opened in 1979.
The criteria for eligibility were a minimum of 20 years reporting big sport at the MCG and candidates generally should have occupied senior positions in their employment or been acknowledged by their peers as having superior qualifications.
Interstate journalists who have covered Test cricket and/or interstate football at the MCG over a long period are also eligible for induction.
The most recent inductees were welcomed in 2011.Back to top
