Congratulations to Steve Harvey who has been inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame! The Smooth R&B 105.7 morning dude who is also the host of various TV shows, a motivational speaker, author and comedian has been inducted in the “Active Network/Syndication 10+ years” category for his “Steve Harvey Morning Show.”
Harvey credits his radio success to the fact that he’s not like a regular radio DJ.
“”I sound like your uncle that comes by your house, ” Harvey said. “I don’t have this beautiful voice, I didn’t go to Columbia School of Broadcasting, I don’t have this, you know, ‘Welcome, this is KC105! We’re hot, new, one!’I got a regular voice, I’m not grammatically correct — hardly ever — and I just sound like a real dude that’s on the radio, and I have very strong opinions that’s very much the opinions of grassroots people.”
The induction ceremony will take place November 17th at the Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago.
