By Michael May 1, 2024

Crook & Chase, Diane Rehm, Larry Elder and Richard Blade are among the well-known radio professionals who are nominated for the Radio Hall of Fame. Howard Stern, who has long expressed disinterest in joining the institution, is not among the 24 nominees announced today by The Museum of Broadcast Communications. The nominees were chosen by the Radio Hall of Fame nominating committee, with input from the radio industry and listeners.

More than 900 industry members will receive a ballot on Monday, May 20, to cast votes for up to six nominated individuals. Voting runs through Monday, June 3. The top six vote recipients will gain induction as part of the 2024 Radio Hall of Fame induction class. The two additional inductees that will make up the eight-person induction class will be selected by the Radio Hall of Fame nominating committee.

The eight Radio Hall of Fame inductees for 2024 will be announced on Monday, June 17, and will be honored at the 2024 Radio Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Thursday, Sept. 19 at the Omni Nashville Hotel in Nashville.

Dennis Green, co-chairman of the Radio Hall of Fame, said in a statement: “The 2024 nominees to the Radio Hall of Fame represent one of the most diverse group of talents we have honored.”

Kraig T. Kitchin, co-chairman, Radio Hall of Fame, added: “I encourage each industry member receiving a confidential ballot to participate in the selection of this years’ inductees.”

The Radio Hall of Fame was founded by the Emerson Radio Corporation in 1988. The Museum of Broadcast Communications took over operations of the Hall in 1991.
