The Connecticut Society of Professional Journalists board of directors will induct two longtime journalists into the Connecticut Journalism Hall of Fame at its annual dinner on May 25.
University of Connecticut’s Journalism Department Chairwoman Maureen Croteau and television and radio broadcaster and author Diane Smith each had careers that spanned more than 30 years.
Smith is known by many residents in Connecticut for her years as a reporter and anchor on local television stations. She is an award-winning reporter, anchor, writer, and producer. She has written books, is the producer of events for the Old State House in Hartford, and serves actively on a variety of boards, most recently for the Center for Women in Business at Quinnipiac University, where she was an adjunct years ago.
She recently founded Diane Smith Media and is an independent contractor with the Connecticut Network (CT-N).
