Decades of Radio Hosts have brought us together to share stories to make us laugh, ponder life, share sports stats or simply to entertain the mind through listening to music. In 1988, the National Radio Hall of Fame (NRHOF), a United States organization that was created by the Emerson Radio Corporation started spotlighting the Greats who captivated our ears throughout time.
Before the end of the year, new inductees will be knighted into the National Radio Hall of Fame to wear the proud crown of being voted the TOP Radio Host for their category. The NRHOF has announced nominations for induction in 2018. Two of the categories will be voted upon by the public, Music Format On-Air Personality and Spoken Word On-Air Personality, starting June 4th, with four other Categories voted upon by a panel of almost 1,000 industry members: Active Local/Regional (10 years or more), Longstanding Local/Regional (20 years or more), Active Network/Syndication (10 years or more) and Longstanding Network/Syndication (20 years or more).
Inductees will be announced on June 25th with the induction ceremony taking place on November 15th at Guastavino’s in New York. The last category, Spoken Word On-Air Personality, is where our very own George Noory on Coast To Coast AM has the honor of being nominated!
Amongst the list of all the Personalities that have graced radio and who currently hold a space in the NRHOF, here are some we all probably know and have listened to over the years:
Like TV, we all have our favorite Radio stations. Over the years, categories and audiences have expanded. For the majority of our loyal C.Crane fans, Talk Radio has been the heart of our Listener base. They value the concept of Radio and cherish this avenue to learn through listening. Centuries before us, the creation of Radio through trial and error paved the way to its existence today. While we may have lost some iconic figures like the recent passing of Art Bell, Talk Radio fans continue to carry the torch of engagement through shining the bright lively voices who enthrall us with their specific voices and festive personalities.
Please join us in celebrating, with George, his Nomination starting June 4th and wish the rest of all the candidates the very best!
