The MUSEUM OF BROADCAST COMMUNICATIONS announced SATURDAY at the NATIONAL RADIO HALL OF FAME induction ceremony that it will get a $6 million state appropriation to get construction on its long-delayed building going again.
The 62,000 square foot facility has been tied up in delays over funding; a foreclosure suit by a construction company was settled in the SPRING by granting the builder a mortgage on the property.
DIAL GLOBAL and COX RADIO Talk WSB-A/ATLANTA talker NEAL BOORTZ, BARRET "DR. DEMENTO" HANSEN, WESTWOOD ONE Founder/Chairman NORM PATTIZ, longtime WASHINGTON radio personality ED WALKER, former INNER CITY BROADCASTING Urban WBLS/NEW YORK and syndicated host WENDY WILLIAMS, PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES voice HARRY KALAS, CHICAGO broadcasting and writing legend STUDS TERKEL, and PUERTO RICO personality JOSE MIGUEL AGRELOT (the latter three posthumously). were inducted into the Hall at the event, with RUSH LIMBAUGH and DENNIS MILLER among the presenters.
