The RADIO HALL OF FAME class of 2012 will be led by HOWARD STERN, who has finally been named for the honor this year, reports TIME OUT CHICAGO's ROBERT FEDER.
STERN, whose omission from the Hall at the MUSEUM OF BROADCAST COMMUNICATIONS in CHICAGO was enough of a sore point for the SIRIUS XM host that he often trashed the Hall in on-air diatribes, will be inducted on NOVEMBER 10th, along with longtime WLW-A/CINCINNATI host GARY BURBANK, former KLIF-A, KVIL, KLUV, and KPMZ/DALLAS personality RON CHAPMAN, LOS ANGELES host and impresario ART LABOE, WDEF-F/CHATTANOOGA morning host LUTHER MASINGILL, the late WSBC-A/CHICAGO pioneer JACK COOPER, and NPR's "FRESH AIR WITH TERRY GROSS."
"There wasn't any great controversy involving HOWARD's induction because I think everyone has believed for a long time that he deserved to be inducted," Chairman BRUCE DUMONT told FEDER.
