Scott Shannon to MC
2016 Awards Banquet
This year's Master of Ceremonies for our milestone 5th annual Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame Induction Banquet is no stranger to radio in Tennessee. In fact, he himself is an Inductee of our very first awards ceremony in 2012.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we give you, "Your Leeedaaahh"... "SuperShan"...
From WMPS in Memphis, he moved to WMAK in Nashville, where he became program director -- then National PD -- for its owner, Mooney Broadcasting. In a few short years, he was programming such giants as WPGC in Washington DC, WQXI/Atlanta, and WRBQ/Tampa where he developed the Morning Zoo concept that he took to Z-100 in New York City where he made it #1.
In 1989, he moved to LA to run KQLZ "Pirate Radio". Two years later, he was back in NYC doing mornings on WPLJ... where he stayed an amazing 23 years (2014).
He was one of the original VJs on VH1, and in 2000, Radio and Records named him Program Director of the Century. He has also received the coveted NAB Marconi Award.
Now, he's doing mornings on WCBS-FM in NYC, and he heads up his own radio network: Scott Shannon's True Oldies Channel
2015 INDUCTION BANQUET HD VIDEO
The City of Murfreesboro's cable TV channel had a camera at our 2015 Awards Ceremony and Banquet. From that footage, plus other production source materials we provided, they created a 2-1/2 hour special that is currently airing on Murfreesboro Cable TV. They also posted the video in HD on YouTube. If you have never made it to our awards banquet, here is a chance to peek in at what it's all about. And if you have been able to attend, here's a chance to re-live those magical moments from May 2nd!

Chris Parnell surprised everyone, including his dad, by delivering the introduction to Mr. Parnell's video tribute and induction. The younger Parnell has followed in his father's footsteps as a voiceover artist, as well as on-camera, as an alumnus of NBC's Saturday Night Live, and 30 Rock.
