|NRHOF Announces 2017 Class of Inductees
After 24 individuals and shows worthy of consideration to listeners and industry peers were submitted for voting by the NRHOF, the results are in. In just three years since public voting was reinstituted, the NHRoF had nearly 300,000 votes cast for Music Format On-Air Personality and Spoken Word On-Air Personality. Premiere-syndicated Bobby Bones won Music Format On-Air Personality and Bill Handel of KFI-AM Los Angeles won Spoken Word On-Air Personality.
