Early this week, Dr. Don was given an amazing honor. Along with four other broadcasters, Doc was inducted in to the Country Radio Hall of Fame in Nashville.
The Country Radio Hall of Fame is dedicated to the recognition of those individuals who have made significant contributions to the radio industry over a 20-year period, 15 of which must be in the Country format.
“Induction into the Country Radio Hall of Fame signifies a lifetime of excellence and achievement, and this year’s class of inductees personifies those qualities at the highest level,” said CRS Hall of Fame Committee Chairman Charlie Morgan.
“This is really the pinnacle of country radio. There are none bigger,” said WYCD Morning Show Host Dr.Don. “To see the names of all those legends already on the hall is quite humbling. I still feel I don’t belong. I have to thank CBS for hiring me three times and all those listeners who decided, for some reason, to find me somewhat entertaining. And to our military men and women. Just because I want to thank them any chance I can.”
Also honored at the event was George Strait. He was given the CRB Achievement Award, which is presented to an individual artist or act that, through their creativity, vision, performance or leadership has made a significant contribution to the development and promotion of country music and country radio.
“George Strait has done a superb job promoting country music and country radio over the years. His dedication to the format and on-going contribution to the industry as a whole make him the perfect recipient for this award,” said Mike Culotta, CRS President.
