WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 13, 2014)  - The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) congratulates NABJ President Bob Butler on his induction into Kappa Tau Alpha, the national society honoring scholarship in Journalism and Mass Communication at California State University. The society recognizes academic excellence and promotes scholarship in journalism and mass communication.


The seventh oldest national honor society, Kappa Tau Alpha was founded at the University of Missouri in 1910 at the world's first school of journalism. The Society has 95 chapters and has inducted nearly 60,000 outstanding students since its founding in 1910. It is one of 64 members of the Association of College Honor Societies.

President Butler's career has exemplified Kappa Tau Alpha's motto, the truth will prevail," said Errin Whack, NABJ Vice President of Print. “President Butler continues to raise the bar for our organization, and we are proud that he is receiving recognition for his efforts.”

Butler, a multimedia reporter at KCBS radio in San Francisco is the 20th President to lead NABJ. He also represents broadcasters in San Francisco on the national board of the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, and is a member of its diversity committee.

Butler will be inducted into Kappa Tau Alpha on Tuesday, May 13. NABJ applauds President Butler for this milestone achievement.

An advocacy group established in 1975 in Washington, D.C., NABJ is the largest organization for journalists of color in the nation, and provides career development as well as educational and other support to its members worldwide.
