The radio personalities were inducted into the Hall of Fame in a ceremony on the 25th of September.
Each year the IMRO Radio Awards honors individuals working in the industry who have made a significant and valuable contribution to the industry over the course of their careers. This year's newest members to be inducted into the prestigious Hall of Fame represent a broad range of divisions within the radio industry.
Well known on-air personality Pat Kenny joined CEO Fm104/Q102 Margaret Nelson and radio veterans Willie O'Reilly and Ian Wilson in accepting their awards on the day.
During his acceptance speech Pat exclaimed "I'm slightly overwhelmed, my audience is not usually in the room with me". He went on to say that Radio is educational not only for listeners but for himself. "The people I meet who come into the studio educate me." He went on to thank the Christian Brothers school, because "it was a scholarship school. So for any exam or test we had to cram and then you had to regurgitate. Then you promptly forgot everything you crammed with and that's what I do everyday on radio".
