The NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame recognizes television and radio personalities or programs that have earned a place in broadcasting history.

This year’s 2024 NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame inductee for radio is Donnie Simpson. Simpson’s career spans five decades and includes being recognized by Billboard Magazine as the Radio Personality of the Year and Programming Director of the Year. Donnie has been inducted into the BET Walk of Fame and the R&B Music Hall of Fame.

The Digital Leadership award honors an individual at a broadcast station, group or network who has had a significant role in transforming a traditional broadcast business to succeed on digital media platforms in a measurable way.  This year’s recipient is Sun Sachs of Townsquare Media.

This year’s 2024 NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame inductee for television is America’s Most Wanted.  Since 1988, "America's Most Wanted" has turned television viewers into armchair detectives, using viewer leads and information to help solve cases across the country. John Walsh and his team of experts have helped law enforcement capture 1,195 fugitives and bring more than 50 missing children home to their families.  Accepting the award will be co-hosts John Walsh and son Callahan Walsh.
