Honoring the Louisiana Broadcasting Hall of Fame &
Lifetime Achievement Recipients

Many years ago, the LAB began recognizing individuals in Louisiana radio and television broadcasting for outstanding service and achievement during his or her lifetime with the honor of the Lifetime Achievement Award. To continue to embrace the many accomplished individuals in the Louisiana broadcasting industry, the LAB inaugurated the Louisiana Broadcasting Hall of Fame in 2019. Embracing identical criteria of the Lifetime Achievement Award, the Hall of Fame also recognizes other broadcasters in various areas of the industry for their leadership, achievements and contributions to their communities. Both the Hall of Fame and the Lifetime Achievement Award are recognized and inducted during the LAB Prestige Awards.

Louisiana Broadcasting Hall of Fame inductees, retired or posthumously, are chosen based on in all aspects of the broadcast industry; ownership, production, management, engineering, news, sales, promotion, on-air talent, creative services or associated professional fields. Nominees must have a Louisiana background by birth, residence or employment. 

Lifetime Achievement Award Presented to an individual television and radio broadcaster who, in the opinion of the judges, is deserving of recognition for outstanding service and achievement, during his or her lifetime, in the broadcast field. This award may be presented to a current employee, owner, or manager of a LAB member station, with 25 years or more of service to the broadcast industry. Entry should not exceed five (5) minutes, must include one picture of nominee with written narrative for judging AND a :30 second video with sound for the award presentation.
