ABC Classic Rock KLOS/LOS ANGELES on-air personality JIM LADD will be honored at the upcoming 21st annual "CHARLIE AWARDS," hosted by the HOLLYWOOD ARTS COUNCIL on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2.
The ‘CHARLIES’ honor individuals, businesses and organizations who have made outstanding contributions to HOLLYWOOD’s arts and culture. "I am very honored to be receiving this award and am most grateful to the HOLLYWOOD ARTS COUNCIL for their recognition of my work at KLOS," said LADD.
"JIM is everything rock and roll should be about," said TOM PETTY. "He’s a friend to his audience, someone who’s musical taste they respect, someone who’s playlist doesn’t come from a computer or a statistic or a research firm. He stands as a reminder to all of us how much of an art form radio can be."
