The Silver Circle is open to individuals who began their careers in television at least 25 years ago either in a performing, creative, technical, or administrative role within our industry, or in an area related to television, such as TV journalism education, advertising, promotion, and public relations and are still active in a television-related field.

All candidates have also made a significant contribution to the Pacific Southwest Television for a substantial portion of their 25-year career.  Since it was established in 1983, the Silver Circle has 274 members. The Gold Circle, which honors members who have contributed most of their 50-year plus television career to our Pacific Southwest Chapter, has 25 members.

See the list of recipients for the Silver and Gold Circle, respectively.
