Luther will be inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame Class of 2012. Luther has been broadcasting for more than 70 years and is the only announcer to report both the attack on Pearl Harbor and September 11th over the airwaves.
The November 10 induction ceremony will be the second one held at the Museum of Broadcast Communications' new facility at State and Kinzie Streets in downtown Chicago.
Other inductees into the Hall of fame are:
Sirius XM host Howard Stern.
Gary Burbank, from WLW, Cincinnati, WAKY and WHAS, Louisville.
Ron Chapman from Dallas, a legend from his decades in mornings at KVIL.
Jack Cooper, sometimes called the first African-American announcer, with a Chicago career that began in the 1930s.
Art Laboe, the southern California DJ who made "oldies but goodies" a catchphrase.
And the NPR-distributed "Fresh Air with Terry Gross" interview show, which went into syndication from WHYY, Philadelphia 25 years ago.
The National Radio Hall of Fame & Museum recognizes and showcases contemporary talent from today’s diverse programming formats, as well as the pioneers who shaped the medium during its infancy.http://www.radio-info.com
