Four broadcasters with ties to Middle Georgia were among the 2013 inductees in the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame.
Twenty-one people in four different categories were honored Saturday night in Marietta during the hall of fames seventh annual induction and awards ceremony.
Palmira Honey Bee Braswell, Macons first black female announcer at WBML in the early 1950s, was inducted posthumously in the Legacy category. Known for her work as a longtime educator, including a term on the state school board, Braswell died in 2012.
In the Career Achievement category, Jolly Charlie Hill, Kelly McCoy and Mike Roberts all earned induction.
Known as the voice of Hawkinsville, Hill spent more than 25 years at WCEH radio before he became a partner at WVMG in Cochran.
McCoy, who was born in Perry, was a radio personality in Atlanta for 34 years, including a 27-year stint as the afternoon drive-time host on WSB-FM.
In 1996, Roberts bought several stations in Middle Georgia after a stellar career in the Atlanta radio market. Roberts Communications has the only minority-owned station in Middle Georgia: WQMJ (Majic 100.1) in Forsyth.
These four new inductees join a dozen other Middle Georgia broadcasters in the hall of fame. The previous inductees are Ray Satellite Papa Brown, Bill Elder, Charles Big Saul Greene, Don King, Helen Farmer Popejoy, Jim Popwell, Ben Porter, Bill Powell, Bob Saggese, Gene Uncle Ned Stripling, Hamp King Bee Swain and Del Ward.
