The Broadcast Legends will celebrate the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame’s Class of 2018 on Saturday, October 13, with a special luncheon at the Basque Cultural Center in South San Francisco.
This year’s class – the thirteenth to be honored – was selected in voting conducted among current members of BARHOF. The recipient of this year’s Sherwood Award as most popular personality active on Bay Area airwaves, as chosen by the public, will also be celebrated during the luncheon.
