2018 Living Legends event honors broadcaster Holliday, photographer Price
The 2018 Greater St. Louis Association of Black Journalists (GSLABJ) Living Legend event on Saturday, Nov. 3, was a wonderful opportunity to honor two long-time GSLABJ members and important figures in St. Louis journalism as role models and leaders in their fields: Art Holliday, anchor and reporter for KSDK 5 On Your Side and Wiley Price, photographer for the St. Louis American.
The GSLABJ Living Legend event celebrates colleagues who have committed themselves to furthering the GSLABJ and to building the next generation of journalists. Created in 2014, the event has honored several long-term members of our organization. This year, we inducted the first two males to these ranks.
Sponsors of the event, which was held at Il Monastero on the St. Louis University campus, included Ameren Missouri, Enterprise Holdings Inc., Fox2Now, KSDK News, Saint Louis University, the St. Louis American, St. Louis Community College, the St. Louis Press Club and Wells Fargo Advisors. Chapter Vice President Reggie Riddle-Young chaired the planning committee.
