Michael Savage Wins National Radio Hall of Fame Award
July 12, 2016
Michael Savage, the host of the nationally syndicated “The Savage Nation,” will be inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame.
Savage told WND he will be inducted Nov. 17 at a ceremony in Chicago in the category of Spoken Word On-Air Personality.
“To me, this is the capstone of my life,” Savage said, “all my writing, all my speaking. This is it.”
This year, the National Radio Hall of Fame gave listeners a direct voice in selecting the inductees, allowing them to vote via text. The other nominees in his category were Sean Hannity, Diane Rehm and Mike Francesca.
Savage noted that he had promised his listeners that if he won, he would go to Chicago and “during my five minute speech, I would thank them for responding to my message of borders, language and culture.”
