Winner winner, chicken dinner!! Congratulations to Kid Kelly on being selected for the Radio Hall of Fame by the largest popular vote ever cast. Kid will be inducted into the Hall in NYC come November.  During the two weeks of voting, watching the social media posts made it obvious; he’s one of the most respected and loved people in the business. It seemed like everyone—from Howard Stern to the tons of radio programmers, label executives and artists whose careers he has influenced—posted in support of their choice. We all love ya, K Kelly!
