Former WXYZ-TV (Detroit) Reporter Mary Conway has received the honor of induction into the Michigan Journalism Hall of Fame.
Conway, who set the standard for automotive and business coverage throughout Michigan, spent nearly 30 years at WXYZ-TV following stops at WZZM-TV (Grand Rapids) and WIFR-TV (Rockford, Illinois).
“I am deeply honored and humbled to be included in the Michigan Journalism Hall of Fame,” Conway said. “I am fortunate to be honored for doing a job that I loved. I can’t thank Channel 7 and its viewers enough! It was such a privilege to be part of the WXYZ team.”
Also being inducted is Kathy Barks Hoffman, Vice President with PR firm Martin Waymire and the former head of AP’s Lansing Bureau. Hoffman also was a reporter for The Detroit News and Lansing State Journal. She has also spent many years as a panelist on public television’s “Off the Record” public affairs program. Before joining Martin Waymire, Kathy was a director in the Public Affairs Practice of Lambert, Edwards and Associates in Lansing.
In a Twitter post, Hoffman said, “I’m so honored to have been accepted this year, and to be among so many other great journalists who will be inducted this year.”
