The Communications Alumni Group’s Hall of Fame was launched in 1998, the brainchild of Stewart Kampel, then president of the CAG, who proposed the idea, guided the Hall through its early years and was himself elected a member in 2009. Its inaugural inductees consisted of 12 people with remarkable track records in the broad area of communications. Ever since, the highlight of each annual dinner is the installation of a new crop of honorees elected by the CAG Board of Directors.  The men and women in the Hall of Fame have each made outstanding contributions to the broad world of communications, including such areas as media, public relations, advertising, fiction, non-fiction, film and theater. They range from newscast producers to movie producers, from copywriters to screenplay writers, from editors to essayists. Some have won the top awards in their chosen fields: Pulitzers, Oscars, Emmys and the like. Some have become household names. Others have worked behind the scenes. All have accomplished much, and all are sons and daughters of City College, now gathered under one umbrella, forever “bound by ties that naught can sever.” The CAG would like to acknowledge the work of Mort Sheinman, a 2003 inductee, who collected and collated all of the biographies that were originally published in the dinner programs through 2014, researching, updating and polishing all 120. The full roster of members, to date, is below.
