Nationally-syndicated radio personality Delilah will be inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters Broadcasting Hall of Fame at the 2017 NAB Show’s Radio Luncheon, Tuesday, April 25 in Las Vegas
According to the release, Delilah was first bit by the radio bug when she school news and sports reports for KDUN(AM) in Reedsport, Ore., as a middle school student. Since, then she has gone on to become “the most-listened-to-woman on radio in the United States” with more more than 8 million weekly listeners on approximately 160 stations across the country who tune into her adult contemporary radio show.
An advocate of families and children, particularly those in the foster care system, Delilah established the nonprofit Point Hope in 2004. She is also the author of three books, most recently “Arms Full of Love,” which was published in 2012 by Harlequin Books.
“With her distinctive blend of story-telling, listening and encouragement, Delilah has rightfully earned the distinction of being one of the most significant voices in American radio,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Radio John David. “Delilah’s career represents the true impact that radio can have on its listeners.”
Previous inductees include ESPN Radio’s Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg, KROQ’s Kevin and Bean, Steve Harvey, Dave Ramsey, Bob Uecker, Gerry House, Ron Chapman and Vin Scully, among others.
NAB Show will be held April 22-27, 2017, in Las Vegas.
