Inductees begins today.
The 24 nominations in six categories were determined by the organization’s Nominating Committee. Four of those categories will be voted on by a voting participant panel comprised of nearly 1,000 industry professionals. They’ll receive confidential ballots from the online voting service, Votem, which is also used by the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame. Votes will be tallied by certified public accounting firm Miller Kaplan Arase, LLP.
The other two categories will be voted on by the public, also via Votem. Public voting commences June 4 for eight nominations for Music Format On-Air Personality and Spoken Word On-Air Personality.
National Radio Hall of Fame Chairman Kraig Kitchin says, “I personally appreciate the challenging task that our Nominating Committee accepts each year to officially nominate talent from an infinite list of deserving individuals. Congratulations to this year’s nominees, an excellent selection of our industry’s finest.”
Inductees will be announced June 25. The induction ceremony will be held Thursday, Nov. 15 for the first time at New York City landmark Guastavino’s located in midtown Manhattan.
