The NATIONAL RADIO HALL OF FAME has announced the inductees for its Class of 2014, to be inducted in a black-tie ceremony on NOVEMBER 9th, to be broadcast live by PREMIERE NETWORKS in conjunction with the MUSEUM OF BROADCAST COMMUNICATIONS. The ceremony will for the first time move from CHICAGO to LOS ANGELES.
The inductees include JACK WOODS and PAUL MENARD (a/k/a CHARLIE AND HARRIGAN), who teamed at KLIF-A/DALLAS and KFMB-A and KCBQ-A/SAN DIEGO; longtime NEW YORK and syndicated talk host BARRY FARBER; SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS play-by-play voice JON MILLER; actress AGNES MOORHEAD; production legend DICK ORKIN; "THIS AMERICAN LIFE WITH IRA GLASS"; and HUBBARD BROADCASTING founder STANLEY E.

MBC Founder/President BRUCE DUMONT said, “The NATIONAL RADIO HALL OF FAME is taking the show on the road this year. There are many Radio Hall of Famers living in southern CALIFORNIA and several 2014 inductees, so it seems like a great time to try something different, and it will be good to do the show live once again.”
Once again, WESTWOODONE's JIM BOHANNON will serve as announcer for the live broadcast.
