Hall of Fame 2023
Charlie Tuggle has served as the senior associate dean for Undergraduate Studies and the Stembler Distinguished Professor at the University of North Carolina Hussman School of Journalism and Media since 2015. Tuggle built the college’s broadcast news program in the early 2000s and continues to lead it today. Earlier in his career, he spent 11 years as a television reporter before returning to UF as a media relations coordinator from 1989-1994. Wanting to give back by training new journalists, he completed his Ph.D. at the University of Alabama in 1996 and worked as an assistant professor at Florida International University for three years before accepting a tenure-track position at UNC. An accomplished scholar with more than two dozen journal articles, he is also the lead author of one of the leading broadcast news textbooks, an award-winning documentarian, and the host of a weekly show on a local radio station in the Raleigh-Durham market. In 2011, he won AEJMC’s Ed Bliss Award, which honors a broadcast journalism educator who has made a significant and lasting contribution to the field.
