The MUSEUM OF BROADCAST COMMNUNICATIONS will name its special events venue after PAUL HARVEY and his wife LYNNE "ANGEL" HARVEY, the museum's Founder and President BRUCE DUMONT announced in a statement.
"PAUL HARVEY was the greatest of American broadcasters -- a master of words and speech who brought intellect, dignity and humor to each broadcast and demonstrated an ability to connect to his audience for over six decades. PAUL HARVEY was a proud salesman of products and ideals who had the good fortune to share his life with a personal and professional partner of unlimited grace and class," DUMONT said. "In memory of PAUL and his late wife ANGEL, the Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago will name its special events venue the PAUL AND ANGEL HARVEY CENTER. It will be the site of future RADIO HALL OF FAME inductions. Fans and industry leaders are invited to share their respect with a memorial donation to complete the Center at www.Museum.TV."
