The Radio Hall of Fame’s Nominating Committee selects a group of radio personalities and programs for nomination each year. The Committee accepts and takes into consideration the suggestions from members of the radio industry and from listeners nationwide.

Nominees in four of the six categories are then voted upon by members of the radio industry for induction into the Radio Hall of Fame. Nominees in two categories receive both voting consideration by the listening public and the Nominating Committee.

This fall also marks the 100th anniversary of the radio industry, included as be part of this year’s celebration, with KDKA in Pittsburgh often cited as the first commercial radio station in the United States for broadcasting the 1920 presidential election returns.

“Being the 100th anniversary of radio makes this year’s celebration even more special,” said Radio Hall of Fame chairman Kraig T. Kitchin in a press release.
