LAS VEGAS — One of the most recognizable women in radio broadcasting has been inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame.
We’re not sure of her last name, but that’s irrelevant. That’s because Premiere Networks-syndicated host Delilah has been recognized for her efforts.
It marks the first time a woman has been chosen in the last 35 years.
Delilah’s induction came Tuesday (4/25) at the 2017 NAB Show Radio Luncheon.
To a packed audience at the Westgate, Delilah said, “My career, some would say my entire life, revolves around story telling. It’s what I do. There are so many PDs and GMs who have been good to me, encouraged me and gave me an opportunity to tell stories. That turned into great ratings, and an amazing, ongoing relationship with the audience. My thanks to everyone involved, and to the NAB, for allowing me such an honor.”
This is the third prestigious honor in the past year for Delilah. In 2016, Delilah received the NAB Marconi Award for “Network/Syndicated Personality of the Year,” and was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame.
Often referred to as the “Oprah of Radio,” Delilah’s program is heard on more than 160 radio stations.
