There are all kinds of awards given out to Journalist and TV people and many aren't worth the paper they are printed on.
Many awards and ceremonies are just money makers for the people that put on the awards.
On November 7th, the New York State Broadcasters Association will induct 5 people into the New York State Broadcasters Hall of Fame. The five are, Perry Sook (Nexstar), Rafael Pineda, News Anchor, WXTV New York, Funkmaster Flex, Radio DJ, Curtis Sliwa, Radio Personality and Bill Ransom (pictured), former GM at WKBW in Buffalo.
Last we heard the "Hall of Fame" is normally reserved for people that have had great accomplishments in their careers.
So how the hell does Bill Ransom get in?!
The guy took one of the highest rated stations in the country and turned it into a laughing stock. Ransom always cared more about dollars than people and he drove WKBW into the ground.
The staff at WKBW cheered when they found out he was retiring.
The station is so far back in the ratings, that it could take them a decade or more to recover.
And yet somehow he's being elected into the New York State Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
What a bunch of crap.
