Nine accomplished radio and television broadcasters inducted into the Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame

Nine distinguished radio and television personalities were inducted into the Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame on Thursday, June 13, at the annual MA Broadcasters Association luncheon and awards ceremony at the Boston Marriott Quincy Hotel. 


The 2024 inductees were, alphabetically by last name:

– Barbara Bernard, who at nearly 100 years old can look back at an award-winning radio and television career that’s made her one of the most beloved personalities in Western Massachusetts;

– Bill Fine, who served as only the fourth president and general manager in the history of WCVB-TV, Channel 5 — Boston’s ABC affiliate, Hearst Television’s flagship, and the country’s most honored commercial TV station;

– The Joe and Andy Family – For more than a decade, mostly during the 1980s, “The Joe and Andy Family” get-together on WROR-FM, starring Joe Martelle and the late Andy Moes, was a morning drive-time “hit” and an “appointment radio” laugh-fest;

– Alison King, the universally respected political reporter who recently left NBC10 Boston and NECN to join the Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics as a Resident Fellow and Shorenstein Center as a Research Fellow. She is also a fellow at Salem State University’s Institute of Politics.

– Phillip Martin, a multi-award-winning journalist and the senior investigative reporter for The GBH News Center for Investigative Reporting;

– Glenn Ordway, who spent 13 years as a member of theBoston Celtics’ radio broadcast team and led numerous successful sports talk programs;

– Candy O’Terry, also known as “Candy O,” a radio broadcaster, podcaster, singer, songwriter, and speaker coach and creator of the award-winning podcast series The Story Behind Her Success; and

– Pebbles, longtime Boston morning host and the reigning (2023) Massachusetts Broadcasters Association (MBA) “Broadcaster of the Year.”

The induction ceremony took place in front of 300 current and former colleagues, family, members, and friends of the nine inductees.  This year’s class brings the total number of broadcasters in the Hall of Fame to more than 190.

The complete video of the ceremony will be available soon.  View each of the introductory videos for the 2024 inductees here or on the MBA’s YouTube channel.
