The self-described King of All Media, Howard Stern, has finally earned a spot in the Radio Hall of Fame. Stern, who hosted a nationally syndicated radio show for nearly 20 years, has been up for the honor four times before.
"There wasn't any great controversy involving Howard's induction, because I think everyone has believed for a long time that he deserved the honor,” chairman Bruce DuMont told TimeOut Chicago.
Stern has repeatedly blasted the Radio Hall of Fame, calling it a joke and a sham.
Other 2012 Radio Hall of Fame inductees include Gary Burbank, Ron Chapman, Art Laboe, Luther Masingill, Jack Cooper, and NPR’s Fresh Air, which is hosted by Terry Gross.
The induction ceremony will be held at the Museum of Broadcast Communications on November 10. No word on if Howard will attend.
Stern currently hosts a show on Sirius XM Radio and is a judge on America's Got Talent.
