ALPHA MEDIA News Talk KTSA (550/FM 1071)/SAN ANTONIO on-air personalities TREY WARE and JOHNNY SHANNON will be inducted into the SAN ANTONIO RADIO HALL OF FAME on SATURDAY, AUGUST 22nd at 2p (CT) at the BEETHOVEN MAENNERCHOR HALL.
TREY has also been nominated for the TEXAS RADIO HALL OF FAME which, if chosen, would be KTSA's fourth inductee alongside JOHNNY SHANNON, ELIZABETH RUIZ and TREY's dad, RICCI, who were previously elected.
ALPHA MEDIA EVP Programming SCOTT MAHALICK commented: “TREY is an all-star talent who’s got game and we are proud to see him named to the SAN ANTONIO RADIO HALL OF FAME.”
Added TREY WARE: "What an honor and a thrill it is to be the youngest person ever inducted into the SAN ANTONIO RADIO HALL OF FAME, and to be nominated for the TEXAS RADIO HALL OF FAME all in the same week. I never imagined when I began my career in the mid-'70s as a preteen that this would happen to me. It's true, with hard work and passion, dreams really do come true."
Noted JOHNN SHANNON: “When a friend recently called me to say, 'Congratulations, you've been inducted into the SAN ANTONIO RADIO HALL OF FAME,' I was totally surprised and literally speechless, but mostly humbled and grateful. Over the years, when we move around in the business, we don't just have co-workers......they usually become friends, most are lifelong friends. That is an added benefit of being in radio broadcasting.”
PD/Operations Director GREG MARTIN remarked, “Both TREY and JOHNNY, as well as past KTSA inductees, exemplify what it means to be connected and local in a community. I’m very proud to work with such professionals who have so much heritage with KTSA and SAN ANTONIO.”
