Lewis Lazare follows Chicago media and marketing news

Recently in National Radio Hall of Fame Category

Local radio personalities Terri Hemmert and Steve Dahl are nominees for induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame.

Hemmert is a long-time host on adult rock WXRT-FM (93.1), where she is known for her encyclopedic knowledge of music, especially the Beatles. Hemmert made Chicago radio history in 1981, when she became the city's first female morning drive personality on WXRT. The outspoken Dahl, who was taken off the air at WJMK-FM (104.3) in late 2008, is another well-known radio host. He is considered one of radio's first "shock jocks." Dahl first hit it big in radio in Detroit, before moving to Chicago in 1979.

The public will vote and select which nominees make it into the Hall of Fame. For further information or to vote visit Voting will begin June 14.
