Official Statement about the Re-Investigation of Bob Crane's Murder (11/23/16)
"We—my coauthors and I, members of Bob Crane's family, his friends, and his colleagues—are always hopeful that one day, the true identity of Bob's murderer will be known and justice can be served. However, this recent investigation did not reveal any groundbreaking information or provide a resolution, and the subsequent media coverage did nothing more than bring unnecessary heartache to many who knew, loved, and cared about Bob. We do not discuss or endorse any speculative theories as to who may have committed the crime. We encourage those who want to know more about Bob Crane to discover his complete and true life story in Bob Crane: The Definitive Biography. All author profits are being donated to various charities in Bob's memory."

Announcement from the 2011 National Radio Hall of Fame Committee

Well, bad news folks. 

We are sorry to announce that the Museum of Broadcast Communications and the National Radio Hall of Fame Committee decided to forgo the public voting process this year and hand select a few individuals for the 2011 National Radio Hall of Fame. This decision is the result of the Museum's move into their new building, set for later this year.

They have, however, assured us they will keep Bob Crane's nomination on file for consideration in future National Radio Hall of Fame classes.

While we are disappointed with this recent decision, we do appreciate the achievements of those who are being recognized in the 2011 class and extend our congratulations to each of them.

Further, we will keep this site and Bob's memory alive by continuing to showcase his tremendous work in radio and in the entertainment industry. 

You can help. Send your support of Bob Crane's inclusion on the 2012 ballot by contacting the Museum of Broadcast Communications directly.

And keep spreading the word about Bob Crane, a true radio legend.
