Radio Hall of Fame Nominating Committee inductee
Sponsors of the 2020 Radio Hall of Fame induction include Premiere Networks and The Weiss Agency.
The Radio Hall of Fame is led by chair Kraig Kitchin, who spent many years leading Premiere Radio Networks as its co-founder and is a former CEO of The Blaze. He said, “Each year, I continue to be impressed by the caliber of our inductees, who deserve recognition for the high-quality radio they bring to listeners,” he said.
RHOF Nominating Committee Chair is Dennis Green, who serves as Chief Revenue Officer for Sun & Fun Media and Key Networks.
Three inductees were determined by a vote from a panel of 600 industry professionals; four were voted on by the Nominating Committee. Two were a result of a public vote from the listening public. The votes were monitored by certified public accounting firm Miller Kaplan Arase, LLP.
Additional details are forthcoming.
