Our mission is to recognize today’s Georgia radio professionals as well as the pioneers who shaped radio in the state, since March 15, 1922, when the first radio station in the state signed on the air. The Georgia Radio Hall Of Fame is dedicated to the preservation of written and oral Georgia radio history.
HOW WE OPERATE
Our organization is operated by volunteers. There is no compensation for any officers. The organization is member supported. Operational expenses are kept to a bare minimum because of donated office space, utilities, and clerical work. Our annual event usually breaks even or leaves a few dollars for operational expenses such as storage, postage, supplies, fees, web site hosting, and occasional professional services.
John Long - CEO
Janice Taylor Scott - CFO
Patti Long - Secretary
In July 2016, the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame, Inc changed it's organizational structure to a three member board. Selecting a steering committee is being considered to help guide the organization and continue it's mission to insure preservation, continuity, and access.
