Our Mission: To celebrate and preserve memorabilia, radio equipment, audio, written and oral history of radio in Rhode Island.
Become an Associate Member!
In order to nominate your favorite radio personalities, you must be an Associate Member of the RIRHOF. Associate members may contribute and donate memorabilia, audio and any other pertinent information for inclusion into the Hall.
Anyone may become an Associate Member of the Rhode Island Radio Hall of Fame, presented by Navigant Credit Union!
For a one-time fee of $25, your lifetime membership in the RIRHOF will enable you to nominate and vote every year for your favorite radio personalities to be inducted into the Hall. You will have your name listed here on the RIRHOF website as an Associate Member.
Additionally, your membership fee will also serve as a donation to benefit local charity.
