We are very proud to announce that as part of the 10th annual People’s Choice Podcast Awards Ceremony we will include our first ever class of inductees into the Podcasting Hall of Fame.
On April 14th 2015 we will induct the first class of honorees into The Podcasting Hall of Fame at the Podcast Awards Show. The event will be held at the Westgate Resort & Casino in Las Vegas Nevada as part of New Media Expo #NMX side-by-side with the NAB Show. and NAB Show.
Why Start a Podcasting Hall of Fame Now?
We have been talking about creating a podcasting hall of fame for a few years now. With this being the 10th annual Podcast Awards, and the co-location with NAB Show next year, it just felt like the time had come to start canonizing and celebrating the icons and pioneers of the podcasting community in a formal setting. The Podcast Awards is the obvious forum to do that. The Podcast Hall of Fame is a way to document the history of podcasting and recognize the people who have contributed to the art, science and community of podcasting and podcasters. Eligible nominees would include podcasters, technology innovators, and others who have pioneered the medium. The Podcasting Hall of Fame is also a way for the entire podcasting community to say thank you to the pioneers.”
So here is the big question. Who are the first three people you think should be inducted into the Podcasting Hall of Fame?
