The Silver Circle was established in 1983 and nearly 300 Members have joined the prestigious honor roll.  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.  All candidates must have also made a significant contribution to Pacific Southwest Television for a majority of their 25-year career.  Candidates need to have been active in not only the Chapter, but the community as well. Please note, many nominees are not selected the first year they are nominated and many are inducted after 30-35 years of their television career. Only current residents of our chapter are eligible.

The Gold Circle honors members who have contributed most of their 50 year plus television career to our Pacific Southwest Chapter, and  25 members have joined the prestigious honor roll.
