On May 13, nine journalists will be inducted into the Oklahoma Journalism Hall of Fame. The group includes two women: Gloria G. Brown and Joan Henderson. Brown started as a proofreader for the Perry Daily Journal. She got to be "women's editor" (oh joy) and worked her way up to managing editor. Henderson worked for Oklahoma Today - holding positions of general manager and, in 1997, publisher. She is credited for helping Oklahoma Today win many regional and national awards.
The Oklahoma Journalism Hall of Fame induction luncheon will take place on the third floor of the Nigh University Center, University of Central Oklahoma, Edmond at 11:45am on May 13.
