The mission of the Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame at Massasoit Community College is to honor the Massachusetts broadcasting industry’s most noteworthy members, commemorate their singular achievements and meritorious contributions to the broadcasting profession, and to preserve their work for future generations.
The organization conducts a nomination and selection process each year in order to induct individuals who through their life’s work have made major contributions to Massachusetts broadcasting and broadcasting in general. An induction and awards event follows.
An informational plaque at a permanent exhibit at Massasoit Community College in the public space of the Arts Center represents each inductee. This space is open to the public for viewing during regular college hours. Over time a much more extensive exhibit is planned as well as a traveling version that can go to state colleges and other places of note.
The Hall is working toward acquiring space so that it can begin to acquire and receive archival materials from broadcasters and other individuals across the state. This material – recordings, scripts, etc. – will be made available to students for scholarly work in the area of communication media and eventually in some form to the public at large.
The Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame is an incorporated 501(c)3 organization.
