The GAB Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have had a lasting impact on the state’s broadcasting industry. “Once again our Hall of Fame class has great representation from radio and television, small markets and large, management and on-air talent and with diversity that is truly representative of Georgia’s broadcasting industry,” said GAB President Bob Houghton. “We are so pleased to be able to honor these incredible individuals.”

The following individuals will be inducted into the Hall of Fame during a ceremony in Athens, Ga., on Jan. 26.

  • Doug Weathers, WTOC-TV – television journalist and news director
  • Ed Harbison, WQXI-AM/FM and WAGH(FM) – Georgia state senator
  • Scott Miller, WCUG(FM) – radio broadcaster and play-by-play voice for Columbus State University Cougars

Each winter the GAB hosts an annual luncheon to honor new Hall of Fame members and recognize recipients of the annual E. Lanier Finch Scholarship.

Past inductees include this year’s emcee — Monica Pearson with Georgia Public Broadcasting — and others, including Judy Woodruff, broadcast TV journalist; Skip Caray, former Atlanta Braves play-by-play announcer and son of Chicago broadcasting legend Harry Caray; Pete Van Wieren, American sportscaster; and Mike Roberts, Georgia radio station owner and morning host.
