Hall of Fame

Each winter, the Georgia Association of Broadcasters hosts an annual luncheon honoring new Hall of Fame members and acknowledging recipients of the E. Lanier Finch Scholarship. This event brings together seasoned broadcasting veterans with aspiring broadcasters. It’s a celebration of the amazing careers of those who have built the industry while looking ahead to the future with our scholarship recipients.

Since its inception, the GAB Hall of Fame has inducted 100 Broadcasters, honoring big name legends and small-town greats. Consideration for this honor is given to broadcasters with a minimum of 20 years in broadcasting with a tie to Georgia; went to school, lived, or worked in the state, a solid record of achievement including rating dominance and local/national awards, and a history of dedication to the communities they serve.
