Veteran Radio Announcer Jacquie Gales Webb to be Inducted into Radio Hall of Fame

JacquieGalesWebbWHUR Sunday Afternoon Gospel Hostess Jacquie Gales Webb is such a fixture on Washington, D.C. radio airwaves that many of her fans may not realize that she’s not a native Washingtonian. Before she came to the city in the late 70s, Gales Webb kicked off her stellar broadcasting career in Boston. Now, her college alma mater WERS 88.9 FM (Emerson College’s student-run radio station) is inducting the distinctive-voiced announcer into its Hall of Fame.

At the sixth annual WERS Hall of Fame Induction ceremony, Gales Webb will be inducted alongside Gary Krantz  (President/CEO of Krantz Media Group); Florence Markoff (long-time radio personality on WEAN, WJAR, WICE and WLKW) and Chet Tart (Vice President/General Manager, WSVU). “It’s such an honor to be recognized for something you love to do. God gave me the inspiration to use communications skills to benefit His people,” says Gales Webb. “WERS and Emerson College gave me what I needed to develop my skills.”

Gales Webb has been nominated for 14 regional Emmy Award nominations, won six local Emmys and produced the thirteen-part radio series, “Black Radio: Telling It Like It Was” (hosted by the late Lou Rawls), that earned The University of Georgia’s Peabody Award. She was also prominently featured in the critically acclaimed 2011 gospel music documentary film “Rejoice & Shout.”
