The Silver and Gold Circles

One of the highest honors given by NATAS, the Ohio Valley Silver Circle recognizes television professionals who have performed distinguished service within the television industry for 25 years or more, a significant part of which was done within our chapter’s  region of Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and West Virginia. Gold Circle inductees have served the industry for 50 years or more.  Silver and Gold Circle members are honored for more than their longevity — they are honored for making an enduring contribution to the vitality of the television industry and for setting standards of achievement we can all hope to emulate.
These honorees also give back to the community as mentors, educators, and volunteers.

Recommend someone to be inducted into our Silver or Gold Circle.
Deadline is April 15, 2022.
