Even if you can’t attend the National Radio Hall of Fame induction ceremony next week, you can still hear it all for free via live audio streaming.
The sold-out event November 2 from Chicago’s Museum of Broadcast Communications will be live-streamed and available on-demand on TuneIn, the online podcasting site. It starts at 7 p.m.
Heading the list of this year’s inductees is Chicago radio legend John Records Landecker, who’ll be presented by longtime colleague and friend Bob Sirott. The two worked together at WLS AM 890, where Landecker rose to fame during his first run from 1972 to 1981.
Other inductees in the shrine to radio’s greatest performers and programs include Sean Hannity (presented by Scott Shannon), Tom Barnard (presented by Scott Jameson), Bobby Bones (presented by Rod Phillips), Bill Handel (presented by Greg Ashlock), Joseph Field (presented by David Field), and the late Bob Sievers (presented by Ryan Wrecker).
Robin Quivers, also announced as an inductee, is not expected to attend.
Kraig T. Kitchin, chairman of the National Radio Hall of Fame, said in a statement: "We're pleased to have such talented and accomplished presenters joining us on this special night and happy that those who can't attend won't miss a beat thanks to TuneIn."
Tickets for the 29th annual black-tie optional event at the Museum of Broadcast Communications, 360 North State Street, were $275.
