Kudos to America’s Morning Show’s Blair Garner, KHKX Midland’s Mike and Dana Schuff and WUSN Chicago’s Lisa Dent. These talented radio hosts represent the On-Air inductees for the Country Radio Hall of Fame’s class of 2016.

The Country Radio Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the world of radio in a 20-year period, with 15 of those years being country music specific.

In addition to hosting America’s Morning Show, Blair is a three-time ACM National Radio Personality of the Year. He hosted the nationally syndicated “After Midnite” for 20 years and in 2013 was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame.

Mike and Dana got their start in Odessa, Texas, where they helped their radio stations earn CMA Station of the Year honors while garnering both CMA and ACM Small Market Personality of the Year trophies for themselves. The couple is now retired from radio, but celebrate 23 years of marriage.

Co-host of “Lisa Dent and Ramblin’ Ray” on Chicago’s WUSN, Lisa has also been honored with CMA and ACM Personality of the Year awards, but before she hit the Windy City, she had major market assignments in San Diego, Minneapolis, Seattle and Houston.

Luke Bryan will recognizes Blair, Mike, Dana and Lisa, along with radio executives Mick Anselmo, Kerby Confer, Jack Reno, Tim Roberts and Jim Slone during the Feb. 8 opening ceremonies of radio industry’s annual Country Radio Seminar held in Nashville. The class will later be officially inducted at a dinner and awards ceremony honoring their achievements.

Congratulations to each member of the class of 2016.
