Our voting cycle will be in two steps. Step one (the nominating round) is complete for 2019.
Names of vetted, and BOARD APPROVED nominees will be posted the weekend of June 15th. This added layer should reduce the number of nominees significantly.
Final round voting will begin then (June 15th) and run through June 30th at 6pm.
Inductees will be named on or before July 4th.
The basic and most minimum requirement is that the individual nominee have worked in radio within the state of Texas at some point. The mission of our group is to only recognize the highest caliber of people who have largely made Texas the focus of their good work. Individuals who demonstrated exemplary skill, recognition from their peers, and were absolute stand-outs, no matter what part they played withing their organization is what we are looking for. The thing you should consider before submitting any name is: ‘are they Hall of Fame worthy?’
Our event is on Saturday, November 2nd at the Texas Broadcast Museum in Kilgore. Doors at 11am. Program at 12noon.
YOU MUST BE A LIFETIME VOTING MEMBER before June 1st to participate, nominate and vote.
Incomplete and insufficient ballots will be discarded. *This does not mean that you must submit ten names, but for those names you do submit, you must provide at least a minimum amount of biographical data, photos, etc. All of which are easily uploaded in our online web portal.
Lastly, take note that our organization takes a dim view of those who nominate themselves. We take an even dimmer view when the individuals who do that very thing begin a self-aggrandizing attempt to gain entry to our ranks by the use such tactics. I will personally be monitoring this very carefully. ~Josh
