ABOUT THE MCG MEDIA HALL OF FAME

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.

The Hall of Fame enhances and 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 by MCC president Sir Albert Chadwick.

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.
