It has to make Bob Edwards feel pretty good. The former host of NPR's "Morning Edition" has been elected for induction to the Radio Hall of Fame this fall - though fans can no longer hear him in the medium where he made his name without subscribing to XM Satellite Radio.
Also elected this year are Clear Channel founder and CEO Lowry Mays, Chicago rock jock Larry Lujack, Detroit morning jock Dick Purtan and pioneering celebrity journalist Walter Winchell.
Edwards made his mark at NPR, but recently left after the organization removed him as anchor and made him a correspondent. Now, he's scheduled to begin a one-hour show on XM Oct. 4.
The induction ceremony is in Chicago in November. Tickets to the dress-up induction are available for $500. Info: www.radiohof.org.
