Carl Kasell Inducted into Radio Hall of Fame

Carl Kasell just stopped by my desk to tell me about his recent induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame. Check out a few of the photos taken at the ceremony, which took place last weekend in Chicago.

Earlier this year Carl was nominated and selected (by a public vote) for his contributions to journalism and radio over the span of his career.

We are excited for Carl and agree that he's the perfect fit for this award. As an inductee, he's in good company: he shares this honor with Abbott & Costello, Edward R. Murrow and Tom and Ray, the Car Talk guys. Congrats Carl!
