“The listener response we received last year since reinstituting the public voting process after a five-year hiatus was overwhelmingly positive. Fans want to engage and be apart of the process, which is a tribute to the dynamic personalities of each show,” Chairman of the National Radio Hall of Fame Kraig T. Kitchin said.
The winner is set to be announced on July 11.
The National Radio’s Hall of Fame’s website states that their headquarters are located in downtown Chicago, and is “dedicated to recognizing those who have contributed to the development of the radio medium throughout its history in the United States.”
Congratulations to Sean Hannity and his fellow nominees!
