Diane Donian Paskerian, who was inducted into the Silver Circle in 1989, was also honored at the Oct. 20 festivities, receiving the Governors’ Service Medallion in recognition of her many years of service and dedication to this Chapter.
The Silver Circle is not an award — it is a society of honor. To be eligible for membership, individuals must have been actively engaged in television broadcasting for 25 years or more (with at least half of those years in the Chapter region), made a significant contribution to their local television markets and distinguished themselves within the industry and the community. Silver Circle inductees are elected by current members of the Silver Circle. To date, there are 264 television professionals inducted, spanning 70 years of the television industry in the Chapter region dating back to 1948, when television arrived in San Francisco.
The Gold Circle honors individuals who have been actively engaged in television broadcasting for 50 years or more (with at least half of those years in the Chapter region) and who have fulfilled the same criteria as Silver Circle nominees. Gold Circle inductees are elected by the NATAS Chapter Board of Governors.
