Capitol Broadcasting recently became the inaugural company honored with induction into the North Carolina Media and Journalism Hall of Fame. The induction took place at a gala at the Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill on Friday, April 19, 2024.

Broadcasting is a team sport, said Goodmon in accepting the honor. And it's a team here that's gotten it all done. I have been really blessed to be able to work with so many great and creative people over the last 60 years.

Capitol Broadcasting was selected as the inaugural corporate honoree for its outstanding achievements in media and journalism.

Goodmon spoke about the history of CBC, which his grandfather started, as well as the importance of respect for the audience, the community, and the work of the station.

I consider it a privilege to be in this business, he said. I think our team feels like it's a privilege to work here and do what we do.

The induction recognizes the many pioneering feats of Capitol Broadcasting, among them: the first TV station with a news helicopter in the state, one of the first media outlets in the country with a news website and the first station in the nation to broadcast an all-HD newscast.

The NC Media and Journalism Hall of Fame recognizes diverse individuals and exceptional leaders with ties to North Carolina who demonstrate leadership in their spheres of influence, while exemplifying the highest professional standards and a commitment to inspiring and advancing young people in media and journalism careers.

Other 2024 inductees included J.J. Carter, Skip Foreman, Melanie Sill, Ami Vitale and Eric Montross, honored for their individual achievements and influence across their respective fields of media and journalism.
