A 20-member committee, led by board member Steve Resnik, is spearheading a list of candidates that will include things like Southern California radio trailblazers, personalities, programmers and executives in all formats and regional and nationwide leaders in file advertising from the music market. Inductees will be honored at an in-individual celebration.
Like Alexenburg, Resnik obtained sizeable achievement in the file marketplace. He worked at A&M, ABC/Dunhill and United Artists/EMI. He started New Marketing/The Charts with former Billboard associate publisher Tom Noonan prior to transferring on to The Gavin Report and Radio & Records. He is co-founder and companion of RAMP (Radio and Audio Pros) business journal.
Other board associates involve top radio personalities Rick Dees and Shadoe Stevens.
Los Angeles radio stars are suitable for honors from countrywide organizations these types of as the Radio Hall of Fame and the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame. Similarly, Los Angeles history organization execs are suitable for honors from the Recording Academy and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, amid other nationwide businesses. And of course there is the world-famous Hollywood Stroll of Fame, where people today from all facets of leisure vie for sidewalk stars in Hollywood.
But Alexenburg, Resnik and other folks want a much more localized method.
