Texas Radio Hall of Fame Hall “Hall of Honor” awards are given to those who have made a significant impact on our industry, this organization, their community and fellow broadcasters. Many Hall of Honor recipients go on to be inductees.
Texas Radio Hall of Fame recognizes long time East Texas personality and Program Director Dave Moreland…The man who brought METAL to the Alamo City, Joe Anthony… “Outlaw” Dave Andrews from Houston’s KLOL and KPRC…Dallas based personality Mike Wade, who ‘campaigned, with CLASS’-and finally two top-flight General Managers, Ben Downs of WTAW/KZNE/KNDE in College Station, and Larry Gunter long time GM of KYKS “Kicks Our event is dedicated to the late Sam Pate, Dallas/Ft. Worth Radio News Journalist-who was the first to alert the world: “There’s something wrong in the motorcade” 50 years ago this November.
Is there something better than winning an award? Yes, there is. BEING one. The Texas Radio Hall of Fame recognizes the accomplishments of “A Girl Named SAM” –who blazed trails in an industry that was most certainly a man’s world for the first 50 years. This is the first time in the history of our organization that we have ever had a ‘named’ honor-we feel it is fitting for Mary “SAM” Stoddard, and the leading ladies in radio who will receive it. Join me in congratulating the first recipient: J.C. Webster!
The Texas Radio Hall of Fame induction celebration will be held in Dallas-this November. More information can be found at www.trhof.net
