WASHINGTON, D.C.– Nationally-syndicated radio personality Delilah will be inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Broadcasting Hall of Fame at the 2017 NAB Show. The induction will occur during the Radio Luncheon, held Tuesday, April 25 in Las Vegas.
Delilah first became interested in radio as a middle school student in Reedsport, Oregon, where she provided school news and sports reports for the local station KDUN-AM. Since then, Delilah has expanded her adult contemporary radio show audience to more than eight million weekly listeners on approximately 160 stations across the country, making her the most-listened-to-woman on radio in the United States.
“With her distinctive blend of story-telling, listening and encouragement, Delilah has rightfully earned the distinction of being one of the most significant voices in American radio,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Radio John David. “Delilah’s career represents the true impact that radio can have on its listeners.”
Delilah is the author of three books, including “Arms Full of Love,” which was released in 2012. Published by Harlequin Books, it features a collection of heartfelt listener stories and Delilah’s own tales that demonstrate the importance of family.
Additionally, Delilah established the non-profit Point Hope in 2004. The organization addresses the needs of special needs children in the foster care system nationwide, in addition to refugee children in Ghana. Delilah is the mother of 13 children, 10 of whom were adopted.
Previous NAB Radio Broadcasting Hall of Fame inductees include ESPN Radio’s Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg, KROQ’s Kevin and Bean, Steve Harvey, Dave Ramsey, Bob Uecker, Gerry House, Ron Chapman and Vin Scully, among others.
