A Dangerous Profession

Journalists face danger every day. Some are targeted deliberately, while others simply are in the wrong place at the wrong time. They often take calculated risks, sometimes paying with their lives.

The Journalists Memorial at the Newseum is a soaring, two-story glass structure bearing the names of reporters, photographers, editors and broadcasters as far back as 1837 who represent all those who have died in the line of duty.

Each spring, a committee selects additional names to be added to the wall to draw attention to the real and sometimes deadly dangers journalists encounter all over the world. For more information about the Journalists Memorial at the Newseum, visit our FAQ.
