Country Music DJ Hall Of Fame Inductees Announced

Country Radio Broadcasters announced five new members would be inducted into the Country Music DJ Hall of Fame.

The Class of 2004 Country Music DJ Hall of Fame inductees are Jaybird Drennan, Bob Duchesne, Jerry King, Dr. Bruce Nelson and Uncle Don Rhea.

Founded in 1974, the Country Music DJ Hall of Fame is dedicated to the recognition of those individuals who have made significant contributions to the Country radio/music industry. Country Radio Broadcasters is the trustee of the institution; 74 people have been inducted to date.

The 2004 Inductees will be acknowledged at the official CRB Hall of Fame Dinner and award ceremonies to be held in Nashville on March 2, 2004--the day before CRS-35 kick-off.

Drennan has been inducted into the Ohio Broadcasters’ Hall of Fame. He has received over 100 awards from public service organizations and raised over $1.1 Million for the Akron Area Salvation Army through the annual Holiday Tree of Lights campaign.

Duchesne was named CMA Small Market Personality of the Year in 1994, Maine Broadcaster of the Year in 2001 and inducted into the MAB Hall of Fame.

King joined KKYX-San Antonio in 1975 and ultimately became morning show host and Music Director. He has generously offered his time to act as emcee, judge, consultant or participant in station-sponsored parades, festivals, fundraisers and contests.

Nelson is the morning air personality on KFTX/FM-Corpus Christi, TX, where he also serves as GM. His charitable work includes raising funds for the Ontonagon Theater For The Performing Arts, Michigan.

Rhea has spent more than 25 years on the air in Kansas City. Mayors of Kansas City, MO and Kansas City, KS collectively proclaimed “Don Rhea Day.” He was GM of WATZ-Alpena, MI and retired in 1995.

The Hall of Fame Award Ceremonies will be a separate stand-alone event apart from CRS-35 and will not be included as part the Country Radio Seminar Registration Fee.
