The most conspicuous and embarrassing omission to the Radio Hall of Fame finally will be corrected this fall when Howard Stern takes his place in the Chicago-based shrine to radio’s all-time greats. “The King of All Media” was among seven chosen for induction by the Radio Hall of Fame steering committee Thursday. “There wasn’t any great controversy involving Howard’s induction because I think everyone has believed for a long time that he deserved to be inducted,” said chairman Bruce DuMont. It’s not known whether Stern will attend the nationally broadcast ceremony at the Museum of Broadcast Communications November 10, but considering how outspoken he's been in condemning the Radio Hall of Fame as a sham (and the fact that he was rejected four times in past balloting), don’t bet on it. Other inductees for 2012 are personalities Gary Burbank, Ron Chapman, Art Laboe, Luther Masingill, Jack Cooper (posthumously), and NPR’s Fresh Air, hosted by Terry Gross. Meanwhile, another long-overlooked radio legend, Steve Dahl, still won’t be joining the nearly 200 personalities and programs already inducted. Wait until next year?
