National Radio Hall of Fame - Controversies

Controversies

The online public selection of Focus on the Family in 2008 caused some gay rights leaders to protest the induction ceremony in Chicago on November 8, 2008.

Howard Stern, one of the most highly-rated and visible figures in radio in the last 30 years, has been vocally critical of the organization, and has regularly made the organization a focus of jokes. He lampoons the fact that the entire nomination and selection process appears to be controlled by one man, Bruce DuMont, who is also the sole authority appointing the selection panel for the selection process. Stern has stated he would reject any offer to join, and further said "There is no Radio Hall of Fame. It's just a guy in his basement giving out awards. His name is Bruce DuMont and he has nothing to do with radio other than the fact that his family made radios years ago."

On June 28, 2012, columnist Robert Feder reported that the "most conspicuous and embarrassing omission to the Radio Hall of Fame finally will be corrected this fall when Howard Stern" is inducted.
