USA Today founder Al Neuharth will be among four inductees into the Advertising Hall of Fame at an awards luncheon Tuesday, March 14, at New York’s Waldorf Astoria hotel.
Neuharth also helped found the Freedom Forum, a First Amendment advocacy group.
Joining Neuharth in the class of 2006 are BET founder Robert L. Johnson and Donald R. Keough, former president and CEO of the Coca-Cola Company. Time Magazine founder Henry R. Luce will be inducted posthumously.
The event is sponsored by the American Advertising Federation, and will be the Hall of Fame’s 58th induction ceremony since the award was created in 1948.
Other recent inductees include Washington Post Publisher Katharine Graham and CNN founder Ted Turner.
