The Charlotte Broadcast Hall of Fame will induct its inaugural class on August 21, at noon, during a special luncheon celebration at the Charlotte City Club. Honorees and attendees will gather during the event to hear keynote speaker Bill Whitaker, correspondent for 60 Minutes on CBS, and former reporter for WBTV from 1982 to 1985.
Housed in the WTVI PBS Charlotte studios, the Charlotte Broadcast Hall of Fame was conceptualized in 2010 by a group of Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) staff and community volunteers to honor the many individuals who have played a major role in the region’s distinguished radio and television broadcasting history.
The 2015 class will include:
· Grady Cole (WBT): Cole was WBT Radio’s “morning personality” for 30-plus years, beginning in 1929. On-air, he would share humorous anecdotes and provide personal political commentary on the events of the day.
