Channel 2′s Jovita Moore inducted into Atlanta Press Club Hall of Fame

ATLANTA — Thursday night was a special night for all of us here at Channel 2 Action News.

Our late friend and colleague Jovita Moore was posthumously inducted into the Atlanta Press Club Hall of Fame. Jovita’s family, including her mother and children were there at the hall of fame dinner.

The dinner recognizes journalists who have made a significant impact on journalist in Georgia and across the country.

Inductees include: Lorenzo “Lo” Jelks, Mary Louise Kelly, Jovita Moore (posthumous), Russ Spencer and Dick and Rebecca Chase Williams (posthumous).

The induction ceremony was held at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.


Moore died in October 2021 from an aggressive form of brain cancer. She had been with Channel 2 Action News since 1998.

Last month, officials with Channel 2 Action News and Cox Media Group renamed the WSB-TV news studio to the Jovita Moore Memorial News Studio.

In addition to renaming the news studio, Cox Media Group has also established a memorial scholarship fund and internship in honor of Moore.

CMG is supporting the scholarship fund with a $25,000 investment to support three students who are passionate about the field of journalism and prepared to extend Moore’s legacy. CLICK HERE to learn more about the scholarship.
