The Texas Radio Hall of Fame (TRHOF)


The Texas Radio Hall of Fame (TRHOF) has released the names of the fifty (50) nominees for its 2022 Induction Class.

The voting portal will open at Noon CST on Wednesday, July 20th accessible to voting members via www.TRHOF.net through Friday, July 30th.

“We’ve been continually working to refine, streamline, and demystify the nomination and voting process” observes TRHOF Executive Director Doug Harris, “and this rollout represents a major step forward. We are fortunate to have a group of outstanding broadcasters for our voting members to consider and, for the first time, biographical information on the nominees.”

Over 200 broadcast professionals with ties to Texas radio were nominated for consideration by the TRHOF Review Committee, which reached a consensus on the final fifty. Voting members of the TRHOF will now determine the twenty individuals who will be honored in the TRHOF’s Annual Induction Ceremony at the Texas Museum of Broadcasting and Communications in Kilgore, TX.

“This slate of nominees spotlights the talent on both sides of the mic,” says Harris. “From the tower to the board to the conference room, this list of nominees touches every aspect of Texas radio. We have small town and major market representation that connects to a variety of formats and showcases virtually every position of service in the broadcast world.”

Selection of the 2022 Induction Class is the latest organizational milestone in a year that has, so far, included the TRHOF’s monthlong salute to the Pioneers of Black Radio and the launch of its inaugural scholarship program. The commemoration of the TRHOF’s 20th anniversary will reach its zenith during the organization’s Annual Induction and Reunion Weekend, November 4-5,

2022, at the Texas Museum of Broadcasting and Communications in Kilgore, Texas. Information on becoming a TRHOF voting member is available on the organization’s website and interested parties may still join—and vote—in this year’s selection.
