Lon Helton is the only country representative among the crop of Radio Hall Of Fame nominees for 2019. Helton joins Hollywood Hamilton, the Mark & Brian Show (Mark Thompson, Brian Phelps), and Ryan Seacrest in the Music Format On-Air Personality category, which is chosen by listener voting and the Radio Hall nominating committee. The 24 nominations in six categories were determined by the organization’s Nominating Committee.
Voting for the 2019 Radio Hall of Fame Inductees began June 9 and listener voting begins July 15. Four of the categories will be voted on by a voting participant panel comprised of nearly 1,000 industry professionals. Inductees will be announced Aug. 5 and will be honored this Fall at the 31st Annual Induction Ceremony.
Helton has been host of the Country Countdown USA radio program since its inception in 1992.
