“Listener voting is an opportunity for direct input from radio fans who get to vote their choice,” observed Radio Hall of Fame Chair Kraig Kitchin.
“It’s a fun part of the overall induction process,” added Dennis Green, chair of the Nominating Committee.
Four additional categories will be voted on by a panel of 600 industry professionals. Nominees were determined by the Radio Hall of Fame’s Nominating Committee, following suggestions from professionals across the industry. Inductees in the two listener-voted categories will be determined by the public, who will vote via Votem, as well as the Radio Hall of Fame Nominating Committee. The outcome of the listener vote will count as one vote among the committee votes. The votes will be monitored by certified public accounting firm Miller Kaplan Arase. All inductees will be announced Aug. 17.
The Museum of Broadcast Communication’s 2020 Radio Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be a live radio broadcast from multiple locations this October. The exact date and additional details will be announced along with the inductees from all six categories later this summer.
