Veteran Dial Global radio talk personality and Lebanon native Jim Bohannon has been named by the TALKERS editorial board as the 2013 recipient of the publication’s Lifetime Achievement Award. 

Bohannon began his illustrious on-air career in 1960 at KLWT in Lebanon. He began working as a reporter at Mutual Broadcasting System in 1983 and went on to become the fill-in host for that network’s pioneering Larry King Show. 

In 1993, he took over the hosting reigns of that program which he maintained through its ownership by Westwood One to its present incarnation as a Dial Global property. 

Bohannon also hosts Dial Global’s “America in the Morning.” The recipient of numerous industry awards and honors, Bohannon has been a member of TALKERS magazine’s Heavy Hundred every year since its inception in 1995 and is an inductee in the National Radio Hall of Fame. 

He will be presented the TALKERS Lifetime Achievement Award at the forthcoming national convention, Talkers New York 2013 on June 6 in New York City.

    Jim Bohannon was my inductee choice for "Hall of Famous Missourians", instead of the Speaker Tilley's poor choice.
