Two CBS News talents, two longtime New York City broadcasters and a radio executive make up the National Radio Hall of Fame Class of 2006. "This year's inductees join Jack Benny, Edward R. Murrow and Orson Welles in America's only National Radio Hall of Fame, and they will be enshrined for future generations to acknowledge, both on-site at the new MBC and online as well," said Bruce DuMont, president of The Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago. The MBC is home to America's only National Radio Hall of Fame.
The 2006 inductees are CBS newsmen Douglas Edwards (deceased) and Christopher Glenn; President of ABC Radio John Hare; on-air personality and program director Scott Shannon; and disc jockey William B. Williams (deceased).
State Farm Insurance will sponsor the nationally broadcast ceremony on Nov. 4 at the Renaissance Chicago Hotel. Premiere Radio Networks will produce and distribute the live one-hour induction special at 10:00 p.m.
